Undergraduate Degrees in Philosophy
In Part I teaching is by lectures (2 one hour lectures per week) plus a 1 hour seminar per week focused on specific readings or tasks related to the lecture topics of that week.
At Part II, most philosophy modules involve a one and a half hour lecture and a one hour seminar of up to 15 students per week. The seminars are discussion based and generally focused on examining the lecture material and a specific text in detail. Most lecturers put their lectures and/or material relevant to their lectures on the MOODLE module web pages.
Special subjects involve a weekly two hour seminar and no lecture. Dissertations involve students in independent research with regular supervision meetings.

Assessment in Part II is generally by coursework consisting of two essays of 2,500 words each - one per term - and a three-hour exam in the summer term. Coursework is worth 40% of the overall mark, the exam is worth 60%.
