Our BA Philosophy (including foundation year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate course. This four-year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. Our compulsory English language and academic skills module supplements your academic subjects. Not just quiet contemplation – philosophy has great practical value. You study an exciting and flexible curriculum, embracing both analytical (or Anglo-American) and continental (modern European) philosophical thought. You identify the relevance of philosophy to other forms of enquiry including social, political, cultural and aesthetic, and its applicability to issues in public and moral life.
