About Philosophy at Cardiff University

Within moral and political philosophy, we have expanded our concentration of expertise on Nietzsche. Work in applied ethics has continued in the area of health and been extended to include the ethics of sport and of biobanking and nutrigenomics.

Research in philosophy of mind and psychology has grown to include interdisciplinary publications on the nature of perception and critical analysis of the conceptual framework underpinning the science of consciousness.

Programme aims

The research programme aims to offer knowledge and expertise to take you on to a role in Higher Education, or employment requiring high-level skills in research or advanced subject knowledge.

This PhD programme recruits a diverse range of Home/EU and International students who want to engage in a research environment that is characterised by the combination of expertise across both analytic and continental approaches to philosophy.

    Testimonial from Zoe, Biosciences, UK, 2021, student at Cardiff University

    Cardiff really is surrounded by some scenic gems. It’s in the middle of everything and is so well connected with transport links that you can get pretty much everywhere and anywhere you want.

    Testimonial from Ellie, Journalism, UK, 2020, student at Cardiff University

    I chose Cardiff because it felt right. It was the first open day I attended and even on that first visit I just really liked the feel of the city, with it already feeling like home.
