The majority of Philosophy lectures or classes are held at the Philosophy Centre or the Examination Schools.
For access information about the Philosophy Centre, visit the building's Access Guide. Hearing loops are installed in most teaching rooms. Lectures there are not normally amplified, but this could be arranged on request. Please contact the Disability Officer for further guidance.
For access information about the Examination Schools, visit the building's Access Guide. Hearing loops are available in the Examination Schools. Lectures may be amplified in the following rooms at the Examination Schools (North, South, East, West Schools). For further information contact Tom Mitchell.
Some lectures are held in colleges. For information on access to any lectures held in colleges, or if there are access difficulties for any lecture series you wish to attend, please contact the Administrative Assistant to discuss your needs.
The Philosophy Faculty offers a wide range of lectures, and there is flexibility about which lectures you attend in which term. Therefore, even if you have a declared disability, the lecturer may not be aware that you have chosen to attend a particular lecture series. All our lecturers are informed of the University’s guidelines on making lectures inclusive but it may be helpful for a lecturer to be reminded, for example, that a student who lip-reads intends to attend the lecture series. If you do not wish to discuss your needs with the individual lecturer, you may like to flag them to the Disability Officer, who will try to ensure that the lecture is presented in a way that meets your needs.
Where handouts are available for individual lecture series, we can arrange for them to be available in advance or produced in alternative formats. It is also possible for lectures to be recorded, or for some students to use note-takers, by putting in place a Student Support Plan. Students wishing to discuss their needs should contact the Disability Advisory Service for further information.
