Graduate Students

Students in Philosophy Graduate Centre


Please note that during the current Coronavirus outbreak, graduate students should refer in the first instance to the University's dedicated pages with up to date information for students here.

 Please also note that graduate students who have left Cambridge and returned home due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but are able to continue with their studies, should apply for Leave to Work Away via CamSIS. Information on how to do this is here.

This page is principally for the use of current Philosophy MPhil and PhD students. It includes the Graduate Handbook, a hard copy of which will have been given to you at the beginning of the academic year, the Graduate Training Programme and other useful information. The Faculty's Graduate Handbook should be read in conjunction with the relevant University Code of Practice for graduate students. MPhil students can find their code of practice here. PhD students can find their code of practice here.

MPhil students may find it useful to refer to the Faculty's MPhil Guidelines for Examiners. Further useful information for both MPhil and PhD students can also be found on the University's webpages for graduate students.

MPhil students may also find it useful to refer to CamGuides. This is  is a free online resource for all Master’s students with a taught element, designed as an introduction to some of the academic, digital and research practices that they will engage in at the University of Cambridge. It encourages students to think about ways they can prepare for their Master’s degree before it starts. CamGuides does not need raven access and students will have access to the resource throughout their time in Cambridge.

Both MPhil and PhD students may wish to refer to the University's training pages, for details of a wide variety of training courses available to both staff and students.
