Here at Edinburgh we don’t like to blow our own trumpet – we just let N. T. Wright do it. Over at the Jesus Blog, they asked him which were the top PhD programmes in the UK. This was his answer:
I sort of declare an interest here. We have a world-class program here at St. Andrews, so of course I would say you must come to St. Andrews. But experience in the last few years is that folk have either been coming to us, Edinburgh, to Durham—some to Oxford to work with Markus Bockmuehl, some to Cambridge—but talking to students, it appears that they think that St. Andrews, Edinburgh, Durham are the three which are exciting at the moment.
We couldn’t have put it better ourselves!
