Philosophy at Kent Day

Saturday 10th November 10.00-15.00

This is a taster day for students interested in studying Philosophy single- or joint-honours at the University of Kent. The day is free of charge, and consists of an introduction, sample seminars, opportunities to talk to academics and current students, lunch and refreshments. If you are interested in a joint-honours programme you may be able to attend seminars from your other subject. Although this is a recruitment event, you don’t have to be planning to come to Kent in order to attend.

As we are aiming to offer students a chance to experience what it would be like to study their chosen subject at the University of Kent, we are making the day a student only event. Any accompanying parents/guardians can attend a parents’ Q and A and will be free to tour the campus, or the city of Canterbury during the day. The full programme for the day will be available nearer the time. If you have any questions please email me at, and Mary Daly will be happy to answer them.
