The course is heavily focussed around the completion of three two- hour examinations. Each exam paper requires candidates to complete three essay questions over the course of the two hours.
PRE is a subject specifically for those of you who have always yearned to understand the world in a deeper way, for those of you who must always ask ‘why?’. PRE is a challenging course but the content involved will ensure you start to perceive the world around you in a new way. You will learn how to write very well-structured essays and arguments – a skill that will prove invaluable as an academic tool. In addition, through discussion and debate on complex issues, your mind will become like a razor. You will already know if you are a philosopher because you have asked ‘why?’ all your life. If you would like to extend yourself and discover some of the great minds of Western thought, consider PRE and see what answers – or questions – await you!
