Post Tripos

As a Cambridge undergraduate/postgraduate you can use the Cambridge University Careers Service as often as you like.

Deciding to read philosophy at Cambridge does not commit you to a narrow range of careers. Our graduates include an RAF test pilot as well as IT consultants, management consultants, fund-raisers, civil servants, lawyers, arts administrators and teachers.

Many of our students choose to carry on with further study towards postgraduate degrees such as the M.Phil. and Ph.D. in philosophy. For some of them philosophy will become their career; the last time we tried to count, there were 58 people holding senior posts in philosophy departments around the world who started their philosophical careers by reading for the Cambridge Philosophy Tripos.
