I'm an experienced, online philosophy tutor for the University of London's International Philosophy Programme
and have taught its students for a number of years.
Having studied philosophy as a mature student myself, at London and Oxford, I understand the special challenges of combining home study with other commitments!
International philosophy students first register with the University's International Programme in Philosophy. They receive a syllabus, registration with a local examination centre, access to some online facilities, and some study materials.
Students must then arrange their own private tuition independently of the university. I'd therefore be delighted to discuss your study plans with you. There are details of other philosophy degrees by distance learning elsewhere on my site.
At any time, you can access free philosophy podcasts, videos, and articles by following these social media pages: (Buttons to these pages are always available in the left-hand column of the website).
The University of London's International Philosophy Programme offers three kinds of accredited philosophy course:
Depending on your existing qualifications, you can either begin
the Philosophy BA immediately, or gain a grounding in undergraduate study
with either the Philosophy Diploma or the Certificate in Philosophy.
For the Philosophy BA you must complete 12 units, taking a minimum of 3 years.
For the Philosophy Diploma you must complete 8 units. These may be completed in as little as two years, but most students take longer.
The Higher Education Certificate in Philosophy comprises 4 units and may be completed in as little as a year.
The application deadline is in October of each year to take exams in the following May.
Students who are confident of acceptance, and who wish to make a start with their philosophical studies, are welcome to contact me throughout the year.
My 'early bird' students typically learn how to write philosophy essays, and how to study philosophical texts, so that they hit-the-ground-running in the autumn.
