Study with us

People get into philosophy for different reasons - to advance social justice, to understand the nature of consciousness, to support science, to challenge the law, to strengthen their religious faith... to name but a few! Whatever your interests and motives, we can help you find your way.

  • Explore beyond Western philosophy into Chinese and Indian traditions too
  • Expand from areas you might know, like ethics and epistemology, into new ones ones, like social philosophy and philosophy of law
  • Study philosophy and train to philosophise - they're not the same thing!

I've had the opportunity to deliberate questions that are at the heart of humanity and it is so refreshing to be surrounded by likeminded people, who have a passion for questioning pretty much every aspect of life.
