The four-year BA Philosophy (including foundation year), will be suitable for those if their academic qualifications do not yet meet the entrance requirements for the three-year version of this course and they want a programme that increases their subject knowledge as well as improves their academic skills in order to support their academic performance. The five-year version of this course enables students to study abroad during their fourth year of study. This course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three or four years of study depending on whether they choose to study abroad for a year. During their Year Zero, students study three academic subjects relevant to their chosen course as well as a compulsory academic skills module, with additional English language for non-English speakers. This programme covers a wide range of topics from the meaning of life to capitalism and its critics, from ancient philosophy to current trends in European thought; and we have particular strengths in the areas of: Ethics; Political philosophy; Philosophy of religion; European philosophy (including critical theory, phenomenology, and existentialism).
