Lifelong Learning

Philosophy at Southampton is deeply committed to supporting Lifelong Learning.

We run evening classes and study days for people who want to learn about this fascinating subject, but do not have the time to study for a degree.

Evening Classes

We have an expanding programme of evening courses, which run for 12 weeks during university term time. These courses are designed to develop your knowledge and interest on a particular theme, and are accessible and open to all regardless of prior level of study - all you need is enthusiasm!  The courses are taught by experts in their field, with a passion and enthusiasm for their chosen subject. We aim to provide a wide variety of courses across the university.  Visit the Lifelong Learning Find a course page for further information.

Study Days

In addition to our evening courses, we hold regular, one-day cultural events consisting of a series of short talks on a particular theme that are led by experts from within the Philosophy department.  These days focus on a particular theme, but include a broad range of topics and issues for debate, and consist of a series of short talks led by experts from within the relevant department. Discussion and the opportunity to ask questions are a key feature of study days, so we like to keep the groups small and informal to encourage interaction. Or, simply come along to listen to the latest ideas on a subject. Book your place early to avoid disappointment! Visit the Lifelong Learning Study Days pages for further information.
