Philosophy as an academic discipline covers a wide range of concepts and areas. A degree in philosophy will include taking modules in the major branches, such as metaphysics, ethics and logic. You will study some famous philosophers like Aristotle, Plato and Descartes. You may also get the chance to integrate theology in your studies.
Your degree will mainly be taught in the mode lectures and seminars. You may have the opportunity to participate in philosophical discussions and debates.
The Netherlands is a great choice for international students, as it has a very large international population that would be ready to make any new international students feel at home. The Netherlands was also one of the first non-native English speaking countries to offer courses taught in English to international students. The Dutch people have a long standing reputation of being tolerant and open minded, meaning you will feel welcomed and comfortable as soon as you arrive in the country.
