In philosophy, debate and discussion are key.
When you join our department you are joining a vibrant and friendly community where we encourage one another to explore the philosophical topics that we think are both important and intriguing.
Your study of philosophy will thrive in our welcoming and supportive community of staff and students.
You are invited to our weekly guest speaker sessions. Leading philosophers from the UK and overseas talk about their latest research projects - with plenty of time for debate and discussion.
We also host lectures and conferences by organisations such as the Royal Institute of Philosophy and the British Society for Ethical Theory.
Come and join our flourishing student-run Philosophy Society.
PhilSoc provides opportunities to mix socially with fellow philosophy students as well as staff, helping you to build friendships to last a lifetime.
The Society hosts a range of functions including games nights, study advice sessions, film nights, and meals out.
You can attend our annual Ratio conference which, for nearly thirty years, has invited world-leading experts to speak on topics of special philosophical importance.
