Intended learning outcomes

Specific learning outcomes will depend on the institution selected and the units studied. However, it is anticipated that students will (i) acquire knowledge and understanding of key debates and positions in philosophy and (ii) develop skills in the researching, reading, and presentation, of complex material on these debates and positions, appropriate to Level-I. It is anticipated that students will also benefit from the following:

  • The chance to extend knowledge beyond the units that are delivered in Bristol,
  • Experience of Philosophy in a wider non-UK context,
  • Where appropriate, experience of different teaching and study methods and styles,
  • The potential opportunity to broaden horizons and be immersed in a new and exciting environment.
