The breadth and depth of courses I studied here as an undergraduate, and the opportunity to interact with experts in the field, undoubtedly fuelled my desire to undertake doctoral studies in Jewish-Christian relations alongside working for an international interfaith organisation.

Although I didn’t know it at the time, studying Religions and Theology at Manchester was one of the wisest decisions I have made! The teaching I received at the University was challenging, thought provoking, forward thinking, and intellectually stimulating; it unlocked my desire for learning and made me passionate about wanting others to love learning about religion too.

I have loved studying religions and theology. The number of courses available means you can really tailor your studies to your interests, whether that's Christianity, South Asian religion, Judaism or something else. The department is tightly-knit, class sizes aren't too big and you can get to know your lecturers and course mates quite easily. Staff are really keen to see you do well and make themselves available to talk about any problems you might have. Some of the lecturers here are world leaders in their field, and it's an amazing opportunity to have such fantastic input into your learning.
