Live Event Friday 14th January, with online content available from Friday 7th January

Thinking and understanding are at the core of philosophy, but also at the heart of science. This taster event provides an opportunity to find out more about how the two disciplines intertwine. Join us to explore the interfaces between philosophy and maths, physics and computer science.

This event is an opportunity for students who are considering applying for a joint degree in these subjects, and want to find out more.

Online content for this event will be available from Friday 7th January 2022, with videos to watch and problems to try across all three subjects. On Friday 14th January at 17:00, we will hold a live Q&A with students who do the joint courses and tutors who specialise in this area. Sign up now to gain access to the online material and live event!

This event is open to high-achieving students from the UK, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands. Students should be in the following year groups:

  • Year 11 or 12 if at school in England or Wales,
  • S5 or S6 if at school in Scotland, or
  • Year 12 or 13 if at school in Northern Ireland.

Students who are currently in their final year of school and who are planning taking a gap year, who will be applying for 2022 university admission, are also welcome. Students should be taking, or planning on taking, Maths A-level or equivalent, and expect to receive at least an A grade in it. Students taking Further Maths A-level are particularly welcome, as are those taking Physics A-level. Attendees should be considering applying to university. If you have previously attended a Philosophy Plus event, this is not for you, as much of the material will be similar to previous years.
