Who We Are

The Manchester Wesley Research Centre is a partnership of institutions and a community of scholars working together to promote research in the Methodist, Wesleyan, and Evangelical traditions. It serves as a resource for students, scholars, and the church, particularly those at MWRC partner institutions. The MWRC is not itself a degree granting academic institution and therefore does not accept applications from potential research students.

Students interested in utilizing the resources of the MWRC should apply for a postgraduate degree at any of the partner institutions. All Ph.D. students at partner institutions are Junior Research Fellows and have full access to MWRC resources. All interested students and scholars are very welcome to arrange to visit the MWRC. 

Additionally, students and scholars from any institution may apply to conduct research for an extended period of time at the MWRC.   

The MWRC Brochure gives an overview of the Centre.
