Module availability for students outside the Department of Philosophy

If you wish to register for modules in the Department of Philosophy but are part of a different department/centre:

a) Follow the instructions given to you by your department for choosing modules outside of your home department. Your department may wish to contact us directly to request a space for you.

b) Make sure that your programme specification permits you to take a module outside of your home department.

c) Email us at to let us know the following information

    • Your name
    • Your student number
    • Your programme of study
    • The code and title of the module(s) you wish to take
While we welcome non-department students, places on our modules are limited and we cannot guarantee that all requests can be accommodated.

Which level of module should I take?

All modules are open to students from across the College and, unless specified otherwise, no prior knowledge of the subject is necessary. 

Undergraduate students

  • Our Level 4 modules are the most introductory, and are ideal for students with little to no prior formal philosophical training.
  • Level 5 and 6 modules are more advanced, and should be taken only by students who have completed modules equivalent to those at Level 4 in their earlier studies.
  • If you are interested in taking the above mentioned Level 5 and 6 modules, you are advised to email the module tutor to find out whether the module is suitable for you.

Taught postgraduate (MA and MSc) students

Masters level students must select modules at level 7, unless explicitly permitted to do otherwise by your programme specifications.
