Entry Requirements

The normal minimum requirement for admission is a Bachelor’s degree, with good II.1 honours, or equivalent.

Student Profile(s)

Martin Whitworth

“Very helpful staff (academic and support) - and good communication… I was looking for a challenge, outside of my working life and philosophy has been an ongoing interest. The curriculum looked challenging, but interesting and the discussions with staff prior to application were informative and supportive. The institution appeared to understand the challenges of postgraduate distance learning. All of this made UWTSD and MA Philosophy natural choices.”
