I have found my experience as a philosophy postgraduate student at Nottingham to be very positive. The Nottingham philosophy department has an excellent reputation for research.
Staff are knowledgeable, friendly and supportive, and take an interest in students' work. There are good research facilities for students, with access to library facilities, research training through the graduate school, and a dedicated postgraduate research room. The latter not only provides working space with desks and computers, but also a place for postgraduates to interact and discuss ideas.
As an international student, I feel that the department welcomed me when I arrived, allaying any fears I had about travelling halfway around the world to study in Nottingham. There are many opportunities for students and staff to interact, including weekly postgraduate and staff seminars and a number of reading and discussion groups; postgraduates are actively encouraged to take part in these. Many PhD students are given the opportunity to lead undergraduate seminars. Not only have I found this to be rewarding in its own right, but it is also a useful source of teaching experience which will help my long-term career prospects. Overall, I would happily recommend Nottingham to anyone contemplating postgraduate study in philosophy.
