Links and partnerships
We are pleased to offer a joint-PhD with the University of Singapore, one of King's College's many international partner institutions. We also offer a range of exchange programmes that allow our students at all levels to study for part of their degrees at our partner universities in North America and elsewhere while paying King's tuition fees.
Closer to home, our partnership with the Institute of Psychiatry allows us to offer an unrivalled interdisciplinary MSc in the Philosophy of Mental Disorder. We are also delighted to play an integral part in the College's Wellcome Trust-funded Humanities & Health project through our regular Philosophy of Medicine seminar series.
We have a large, varied and very lively postgraduate community, who not only participate in the research and teaching culture of the Department, but also organise a wide selection of reading and study groups to aid peer-to-peer learning.
