Former Seminary to offer Masters courses

For the first time in nearly two decades, students will again stalk the halls of the Gillis Centre in Edinburgh. As a seminary, it closed its doors in 1993 but thanks to a new partnership between the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh and St Mary’s University, Twickenham will start teaching its Masters courses in Theology and Catholic Education this Autumn at the Gillis Centre in Edinburgh, following a delay caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Archbishop Leo Cushley said: “St Mary’s is the UK’s leading Catholic university, so we’re delighted it has agreed to offer courses here. It’s an ideal location and is consistent with our Archdiocesan aim for the advancement of Catholic education. It will help support the Roman Catholic community and give people the opportunity to study a fascinating range of subjects.”
