International Programmes in Theology and Religious Studies
“I enjoyed the learn climate at the faculty. The topics were interesting and the teachers great. They taught in an interesting and intelligent way. They were sympathetic and tolerant and never gave the impression to stand above the students.”
“The faculty is open-minded, small and has a good name. I can only recommend it.”
