About us

The Protestant Theological University (PThU) is a fully accredited university of theology, located in Utrecht (as of September 2024). 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.

  • "My decision to study here has been invaluable in my current work as a teacher at Waimaw Theological Seminary. During my studies I received the tools that helped me to reflect confidently on 'living' Biblical texts and to think critically about my community and the situation in my home country. It was an incomparable experience.”
