The Theological and Philosophical faculties, to be known as Mater Ecclesiae College, will open on the 1 October 2019 in its new home at St Mary’s University, Twickenham.

Prior to this move, the Institute was based at Heythrop College which, on the 31 January 2019, ceased to be a college of the University of London.

In July of this year, the Holy See, by a Decree of the Congregation for Catholic Education, transferred the Faculties of Theology and Philosophy from Heythrop College to St Mary’s University with governance being transferred from the Society of Jesus to the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales.

Mater Ecclesiae College will remain the only faculties in the UK with the ability to confer ecclesiastical degrees – qualifications recognised throughout the Catholic Church.
