Welcome to Benedictus College of the Liberal Arts

The first Catholic liberal arts college in the UK

Benedictus represents a new concept in higher education in the UK and offers an education as unique as it is broad and deep, with a curriculum that formed the core of university education throughout Europe for centuries.

We invite students to participate in the continuing conversation of Western civilisation, a living dialogue with its greatest artists, writers and thinkers.

Our course is rooted in the classical and Catholic intellectual tradition and our principles centre on education as the development of the whole person through the joyful pursuit of wisdom.

We believe these principles can be shared by all cultures and so the College encourages applications from people of all backgrounds.
