Why study Theology at Laidlaw?

Foundational to everything we do at Laidlaw is a commitment to the good news of Jesus
as revealed in the Bible. We equip students to engage with Scripture more deeply, and to
live out of this story of hope in every area of life.

We are looking for students who want to live out the Gospel in everything they do –
in church ministry, professional leadership, academic research, social entrepreneurship,
community engagement – and in every other sphere of life. Our programmes are
designed to give you the theological and practical tools to integrate faith everywhere,
whatever your particular calling.

At Laidlaw you will be taught by brilliant teachers and researchers, many of whom are
also serving as pastors, ministers, and Christian leaders across a range of vocations.
