Postgraduate exchanges and visits: study philosophy around the world!
Joint-PhD with University of Singapore
It is possible for prospective research students to do a joint PhD, involving the Department of Philosophy at King's and the philosophy department at our partner institution the National University of Singapore. Aside from the cultural exchange, this programme allows PhD students access to a broader range of specialisms than would be available from either institution alone.
There are funding opportunities available from the Graduate School especially to support this unique programme.
Interested applicants should contact Dr Maria Alvarez (our PhD admissions tutor) to discuss the programme.
Links and exchange possibilities
The Department of Philosophy at King's College London has strong links with the philosophy departments at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Cornell University, Monash University, University of Hamburg, University of Würzburg and University of Milan.
These reciprocal arrangements allow for students to spend a period of time studying at one of these host institutions. There is also funding available to support exchange visits to certain of the College's international partner institutions.
Those interested in applying for these opportunities should contact:
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Cornell University
Professor David Papineau
