Sixth-form Philosophy Conference at Newnham College Cambridge

Applications for bookings are now closed. Schools are currently being notified of the outcome and all the details for the event.

This conference will provide academically able Year 12 students with the opportunity to explore some topics in Philosophy. It is open to those currently studying philosophy, and to those who are thinking of studying it at university. The day will consist of three lectures given by leading academic staff from the Cambridge philosophy Faculty. The aim is to enrich and extend, rather than simply duplicate, the coverage of topics typically studied in school. There is no charge. There will also be a discussion session over buffet lunch for teachers accompanying their students.

Places are limited, and are restricted to four students per school (together with an accompanying teacher).
