Heythrop College was established by the Jesuits in 1614 in Louvain, Belgium, for the study of philosophy and theology. In its 400 year history, it has been based in Liège (Belgium), Lancashire, Oxfordshire and London. A College of the University of London, Heythrop retains a modern Catholic ethos and offers an educational experience that respects all faiths and perspectives. In addition to undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes, Heythrop also provides a resource for faith communities and others, especially through the work of its Centres and Institutes. Research is an important part of its academic life and Heythrop is also the Lead College for the University of London International Programme's Bachelor of Divinity degree and Diploma in Theology. In September 2013, the Congregation for Catholic Education of the Holy See issued a decree re-activating the ecclesiastical faculties of Philosophy and Theology at Heythrop College, which had been dormant since 1970 when Heythrop College moved to London. This will empower the College to award in its own right ecclesiastical bachelor, licentiate and doctoral degrees in Philosophy and Theology alongside existing degrees of the University of London.
