Summary

The Conversion in Philosophy Graduate Diploma is a one-year taught programme aimed at students who are interested in undertaking research in philosophy but have studied little or no philosophy at undergraduate level. Satisfactory performance on the Diploma may lead to entry to the MLitt Philosophy programme.

The MLitt in Philosophy is a one-year taught postgraduate programme run by the St Andrews and Stirling Graduate Programme in Philosophy (SASP), taught by staff from both the University of St Andrews and the University of Stirling. 

The Philosophy MLitt can also be taken as a part-time programme. Students will be expected to take three modules per year over two years, followed by an 8000-word dissertation.

For more information about part-time study, please contact the postgraduate administrators by emailing pgpafs@st-andrews.ac.uk.
