What Our Students Say

Andy Divers

PhD philosophy

Photo of AndyI am currently in my 2nd year of studying a PhD encompassing work in moral and legal philosophy and analysis of potential research into genes and crime. I originally came to Lancaster 7 years ago for my undergraduate degree, and have stayed ever since - going on to study 2 Master's degrees here before moving onto my current programme of study. Having a Campus community really helps you find your feet when you first arrive, and being able to study 2 minors alongside your major subject in first year means that you can get experience of more than one discipline (I came here originally to do Religious Studies, but found out Philosophy was for me in first year). The teaching I have received here, at all levels, has been amazing and the opportunities for further study have kept me here for the last seven years.

Tom Wolstenholme

PhD Politics and Philosophy

Photo of TomI originally decided to study at Lancaster University due to the prospect of easy weekend excursions to the Lake District for walking and climbing. The academic atmosphere of the University, however, has been as refreshing and pleasant as the weekend walks, and so I not only did my BA here (in Politics, Philosophy and Economics), but also an MA (Philosophy) and am now part-way through a PhD (in Politics and Philosophy). I am thus no stranger to inter-disciplinarity and welcome the pluralism in intellectual debates here. As a side-note, the staff members at the department were incredibly good at helping me secure funding for my PhD, something which was a necessity for me at the time and which I assume is even more important in the current economic climate.
