Welcome to Maryvale Institute

Maryvale is a specialist Institute steeped in Catholic history providing distance learning opportunities in Catholic Theology, Evangelisation, Catechesis, Philosophy, Ministry and Religious Education at every level from undergraduate, post-graduate and research degrees to adult education and parish courses.

The wide range of levels offered enables students from all backgrounds to develop their full potential and obtain nationally and internationally recognised qualifications. Our validators include La Faculté Notre-Dame (Paris), the Open University and Liverpool Hope University.

Designed to enable people to gain a fuller understanding of the Catholic Faith, wherever they are, the learning method developed at Maryvale is easily accessible, thorough and effective. Courses are delivered using a distance learning method based on those pioneered by The Open University. This combines supported home learning with short residential schools or Study/Training Days at Maryvale.

'And I hold in veneration,
For the love of Him alone,
Holy Church, as His creation,
And her teachings, as His own.'
