PhilSkills for Pre-Honours Philosophy

Every year, the Philosophy department runs PhilSkills workshops to help undergraduate students improve the skills they need to succeed in their studies.

Each of these workshops is designed with a particular course in mind, but all interested students are welcome to attend. The first one is “How to Read Philosophy” by Jade Fletcher on Sept 27th. If you’d like to come, please visit the registration site to book your spot today.

New to programming?

If you’ve never programmed before, I’d recommend learning how. It’s a great tool to have in your belt, even if you’re not sure how it applies to your current research. Almost anyone who works with a computer on a regular basis can save time and do more with just a smattering of the basics.

Alisdair Tullo, our Programming and Applications Manager in PPLS, is starting up a 5-week course for students and staff members who haven’t tried programming before. It will start on the week of Sept 23rd and will be held at the Lister Learning and Teaching Centre. Anyone who’s interested should follow this link for more details:
