Live Chats

Thinking about studying Philosophy?

Philosophy is a subject that invites you to share your views, challenge perceptions and take intellectual risks. At Warwick, you can join a vibrant and friendly community of researchers and students keen to ask philosophical questions. Join us in our series of Live Chats to learn more about Philosophy courses and ask your questions.

What are live chats?

Live chats give you the opportunity to speak with staff and current students from Philosophy degrees in real time. Live chats are open to all, and enable prospective students from the UK, EU and internationally to enquire or ask questions.

Who am I messaging?

The chats will be hosted and moderated by the Admissions Tutor in the Department of Philosophy, Dr Barney Walker. Some current students will also be present to help answer your questions.

Dr Barney Walker is a member of academic staff who currently teaches modules such as 'History of Modern Philosophy' and 'Philosophy of Mind'. As admissions tutor, he oversees applications and admissions to the Department of Philosophy.

What questions should I ask?

Feel free to ask anything! What to write in your application; what modules and subjects you can study; what societies there are; what opportunities for study abroad there are, etc. This is your opportunity to find out whatever you need to know.

What if I can't make the chat?

After our live chats, we will make the transcripts of the sessions available so that you can catch up with our conversations.

If you have a specific question, please feel free to email Dr. Walker

We look forward to speaking with you soon!
