The Margaret Beaufort Institute of Theology (MBIT) is an academic Roman Catholic institution which is committed to offering transformative experiences for all its students.

While our primary mission is to educate and theologically empower women in Church, we are also committed to serving society at large and to provide the opportunity to study on what promotes the common good locally, nationally, and globally.

We provide a space for theological reflection and spiritual formation for anyone who wishes to study at our Institute.

We are a member of the Cambridge Theological Federation (CTF).

In 2018/19 we celebrate our Silver Jubilee. To find out more, please download our Jubilee Newsletter.
