Past Questions

  1. What was your motivation for undertaking postgraduate study?

    I wanted to study at postgraduate level for two reasons. The first is that I really enjoyed studying for my undergraduate degree in philosophy and I didn‘t quite feel ‚finished‘ with philosophy. The second is that I eventually hope to pursue a PhD, which requires study at postgraduate level.

  2. What, for you, are the best things about the course?

    I really enjoy the relationships that we get to have with staff members. It is a very co-operative approach within our department and the staff are always on hand to support you along your academic journey, as well as give you insight into their academic careers and all it entails.

  3. What piece of advice would you give to anyone considering postgraduate study in your field?

    If you are considering postgraduate study in philosophy, my advice is to examine the specialisms of the departments you are considering. Look at their staff and see whether their interests align with yours. If there‘s a staff member that you really think you would benefit from working with, send them an email!
