It is intended for those who already have a good background in philosophy, typically from undergraduate study or a previous taught postgraduate degree.

Programme Structure

  • The main focus of the programme will be writing a dissertation, and you should have an proposal for the topic that you would like to write about when you apply. You will be supported in developing this topic during the year by your supervisor and by dedicated training in research methodology.
  • Students are also advised to take two taught courses (further courses may also be attended, but not for credit), which are available from the wide range of subjects taught at Masters level within Philosophy.
  • Teaching will typically be in small groups, and supervision is organised on the basis of one-to-one contact with one or a small number of expert supervisors.
