About the PThU

The Protestant Theological University is a specialised university for the study of Christian theology, whose proud history stretches back over 150 years. Its renowned predecessors from Kampen, Leiden and Utrecht joined forces in 2007 to form the Protestant Theological University. Since 2012 the PThU has had its campuses in Groningen and Amsterdam. The PThU stands for solid and relevant theological education and research into developments in faith, church and world Christianity. We do our work out of a strong connection to the church and a fascination for how faith works in people's lives - and that includes the faith of our staff and students.
