Top in the UK...again
We rank strongest in the UK in The Guardian University League Tables 2016 for our subject area.

Leap-frogging over Durham, Oxford, Cambridge and Exeter to be top of our subject league table is, says Head of School, Mark Elliott, 'an achievement that testifies to colleagues' commitment to make the School of Divinity at St Mary’s a most stimulating environment for learning theology'.
