Philosophy at Lancaster is pluralistic in approach, and open to engagement and collaboration with other disciplines and institutions. We can supervise in most areas, but our particular strengths are in philosophy of mind and psychology, theoretical and applied ethics, post-Kantian European philosophy, and bioethics. We enjoy good working relationships with related departments and centres, and joint supervision arrangements are possible.
Your work towards a PhD in philosophy at Lancaster will be supported by your supervisors, by the other members of philosophy staff, and by our active community of postgraduate students. You will also find support through our busy programme of reading groups, work in progress meetings, visiting speaker seminars, professional development classes, and research conferences.

The University will not increase the Tuition Fee you are charged during the course of an academic year.
If you are studying on a programme of more than one year's duration, the tuition fees for subsequent years
of your programme are likely to increase each year. The way in which continuing students' fee rates are
determined varies according to an individual's 'fee status' as set out on our fees webpages.
Studying at a UK University means that you need to pay an annual fee for your tuition,
which covers the costs associated with teaching, examinations, assessment and graduation.
The fee that you will be charged depends on whether you are considered to be a UK,
EU or overseas student.
Visiting students will be charged a pro-rata fee for periods of study less than a year.
Our annual tuition fee is set for a 12 month session,
which usually runs from October to September the following year.
Overseas fees, alongside all other sources of income, allow the University to maintain its abilities
across the range of activities and services. Each year the University's Finance Committee consider
recommendations for increases to fees proposed for all categories of student and this takes into
account a range of factors including projected cost inflation for the University, comparisons against
other high-quality institutions and external financial factors such as projected exchange rate
Lancaster University's priority is to support every student in making the most of their education.
Many of our students each year will be entitled to bursaries or scholarships to help with the cost of
fees and/or living expenses. You can find out more about financial support, studentships, and awards
for postgraduate study on our website.
