I’m Robin Hendry, the Head of Department, and I have been at Durham for many years. Congratulations on making it to Durham: I know that you’ve worked really hard for this, especially in these difficult times. We’ve also worked hard to provide an intellectually challenging programme of studies for your time with us. We’re a friendly and open group of people and look forward to welcoming you to our academic community. We’re a small department and so hope that you’ll get to know us well.
This page provides a launching pad. You’ll find links to everything you’ll need to help you prepare to join us. If there’s anything you don’t find here then please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
Professor Robin Hendry
Studying philosophy at Durham is an opportunity to be in a warm, welcoming space, surrounded by other people who love the subject as much as you. From the lecturers’ infectious passion for what they’re teaching, to the open but energetic seminar discussions that regularly spill over into the walk home, it's hard for the passion you already have not to be constantly increased. The staff are wonderful at assuring that everyone has the space to and feels comfortable saying what they want.
Department information will be available using the links below in due course, please check back regularly.
The Timetable has been designed so College events don’t clash with any of your academic departmental events, but offer you lots of opportunities to meet your fellow Freshers, find your way around and settle into student life.
Check out our student blogs to read more about life at Durham from our students. Don't forget to follow us on social media!
