Cambridge Interfaith Programme

 
"I..." - students reflect on their hopes and intentions

Things to consider before you apply

No prior subject knowledge is required, but you are expected to have a strong interest in the field of interfaith studies and a readiness to engage with academic learning styles. A diversity of opinions and experiences is expected and encouraged.

You may be a student seeking to deepen and extend your existing field of study, a researcher exploring new territory, a practitioner welcoming the chance to develop your professional expertise, a faith leader wanting to learn and reflect through comparative study, or another kind of curious learner looking to understand inter-faith relations from different perspectives.

We welcome applicants without any discrimination based on ability, class, sex, gender identity or expression, sexuality, ethnicity, race, national origin or religion.

We also welcome applicants of different ages, although you will need to be 18 or older when the Summer School starts (4 July 2022).

To be able to fully benefit from the course, you should be able to read and discuss complex academic texts in English.

Participation in the Summer School is subject to payment of the relevant registration fee. We offer a bursary scheme (reduced fee) for applicants from the Global South (following the UN definition) and others from disadvantaged backgrounds, in keeping with the University’s commitment to Widening Participation. See further details in the bursary section.
