Postgraduate Admissions

Expected Academic Standard

Applicants for this course should have achieved a UK High II.i Honours Degree.

If your degree is not from the UK, please check International Qualifications to find the equivalent in your country.

Your undergraduate degree must include the equivalent of two years' full-time study in philosophy (10 full courses in the US system). Any offer of a place to a current undergraduate will be conditional on achieving a first class degree (or the international equivalent). However, you may apply if you have already graduated with a good upper second class degree (at least 67%) or the equivalent (US GPA at least 3.6/4), provided that other aspects of your application (such as dissertation marks) show a strong aptitude for further work in philosophy.
