The Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method

The Philosophy Department is very supportive. We have an academic mentorship programme set up with the professors. We are also integrated into a family system with the second- and third-year students who are on our course. It is absolutely an intellectually challenging and stimulating environment.
