10:00 - 15:00
Philosophy at Kent Day

This is a taster day for students interested in studying Philosophy single- or joint-honours at the University of Kent. The day is free of charge, and consists of an introduction, sample seminars, opportunities to talk to academics and current students, lunch and refreshments. If you are interested in a joint-honours programme you may be able to attend seminars from your other subject.

As we are aiming to offer students a chance to experience what it would be like to study their chosen subject at the University of Kent, we are making the day a student only event. Any accompanying parents/guardians can attend a parents' Q and A and will be free to tour the campus, or the city of Canterbury during the day. The full programme for the day will be available nearer the time. If you have any questions please email me at SECL@kent.ac.uk, and I will be happy to answer them.

Booking closes on Wednesday 1st of November.
