Blackfriars is a Permanent Private Hall of the University of Oxford specialising in Theology, Philosophy, Politics, English and the wider Social Sciences.

We welcome mature students (aged 21 or more) to study and research for postgraduate degrees; and also PGCE students (teacher training), and visiting students and researchers.

We are a small institution with no endowment; our vibrant community life and our truly dedicated staff mean that any gift that you can offer will have a big positive impact.
