This programme is offered either full and part time basis.
Take your philosophical studies to the next level. Explore your own ideas and interests, develop your ability to think independently, and design your own topics to explore.
This programme is designed to give you the skills you need to undertake your own research in philosophy. Our aim is to help you develop as an independent thinker, giving you time and space to find a topic for further research. You can take the MRes by itself, or as the first year of a 1+3 programme if you’re already applying for the PhD.
You’ll work closely with your academic supervisors to develop your own ideas and research, advancing your independent inquiry skills as the course progresses.
Our academics are at the forefront of their fields, they’ve published widely and have shaped the development of philosophy across the world. With their guidance, a research-driven programme and a variety of workshops and research groups, there’s no better place to follow your passions and expand your mind.
