Summer Biblical Study in Oxford

The Vacation Term for Biblical Study was inaugurated in 1903. It is known for the academic quality of its courses, and has been addressed by many biblical scholars of national and international repute.

The Term is normally held annually for two weeks at the end of July and the beginning of August. In 2014 only, VTBS will be a one-week event (Sunday 27th July to Friday 1st August), in the inspiring setting of St Anne's College Oxford. From its earliest days, the term has enabled teachers, students, ministers and laity to deepen their understanding of the biblical literature and to keep abreast of current scholarship.

The programme leaves time to enjoy the attractions of Oxford, visiting the colleges, museums and bookshops, socialising and enjoying the surrounding countryside.

Updated details of the 2014 Programme are now available
