About the Programme

Here at London School of Theology we believe research should be accessible, relevant and engaging. Undertaking doctoral research at London School of Theology provides you with the opportunity to be involved in research at the cutting edge of theological disciplines.


Students are required to attend London School of Theology for two weeks a year for supervision and an opportunity to come and learn with the wider School community. It helps that London School of Theology is so close to London and its rich library resources.


We offer research supervision for the PhD degree in collaboration with Middlesex University, which awards the degree.


A PhD thesis must show the ability to test ideas and critically investigate your chosen area. You need to offer a substantial fresh discovery or analysis, to argue some new critical hypothesis, or to provide substantial new arguments for an older one.


Ultimately your research must result in an independent and original contribution to knowledge in your chosen discipline, which, in principle, is worthy of publication. By the time your thesis is submitted, you should be able to show that your competence in your chosen area is comparable with that of the experts.


PhD candidates in biblical disciplines are expected to have the ability to interact with their primary sources in the original languages (e.g. Hebrew or Greek) as well as with secondary material in the main research languages (English, French and German). Other disciplines may require other languages which will vary considerably according to the area of study and some may require no foreign languages.


Full-time and part-time research is available, and for those who wish, there is accommodation and personal study space available on campus.

Funding Notes

Research students could also be partly funded by LST's Raising Theologian Scholarship or Laing Scholarship.
