Beschreibung

Doctoral study in Philosophy at the University of Buckingham is co-ordinated by Professor Sir Roger Scruton, one of Britain’s most distinguished scholars, who is also the convenor of the monthly seminar for doctoral students in the subject. All students are registered, in the first instance, for the MPhil degree, and are later considered for re-registration for the DPhil degree either at the end of the first year or their second year, depending on their rate of academic progress.

Über den Kurs: Being I shy personality I was quite nervous initially but I found this place and the people around quite humble and welcoming. And later it felt like being in home. Teaching staff was great and highly dedicated for the students. I feel proud and happy to choose Buckingham. Thanks for the amazing 2 years.

Themenkreis

The usual period of doctoral study (including the period while registered for the MPhil) is three years, though the University’s Regulations also permit candidates who make particularly rapid progress to apply to the University Research Committee for permission to submit at the end of their second year of study.Part-time applications will be considered, and may be accepted where teaching provision is available; however, preference will be given to full-time applicantsSupervisionEach student is allocated two supervisors. There is a First (or Principal) Supervisor, who is the student’s regular guide during his or her research, and with whom the student meets regularly throughout the year. There is also a Second Supervisor, whom the student may consult on a more limited basis where a ‘second opinion’ on a particular draft chapter may be helpful.SeminarsA major feature of the Philosophy at the University of Buckingham is its formal Seminar in Philosophy, which forms an essential element of the environment in which students pursue their research. This meets regularly during Term at the Humanities Research Institute’s London office at 51 Gower St, Bloomsbury (HRI Gower St). Approximately ten seminar meetings are held during each academic year. Of these, roughly half are delivered by Professor Scruton, with a focus on the systematic reading of a major philosophical text ("Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason" is one of texts surveyed), and an equal number are given by distinguished visiting speakers. The programme list includes some of the most brilliant scholars practising Philosophy today.All seminars take place on weekdays in the early evening (usually at 18:00) and some are followed by an informal dinner during which students can pursue the discussion initiated during the seminar proper.A library of essential philosophical texts is maintained at HRI Gower St, and it is open to all students to request that the University purchase additions to this.More informationEnquiries should be directed in the first instance to Ms Maria Floyd,
