Please find below some brief information, and links to, a range of resources that we hope you may find helpful as a prospective student of Philosophy of Sussex.
All of our students at the University of Sussex have access to the university’s online learning environment Study Direct.

The University of Sussex Library
The University of Sussex Library is dedicated to delivering high quality, innovative information services, which contribute to the successful learning, teaching and research of the University and the community. Situated at the heart of the campus, the library is a superb resource for students and staff alike.
The Philosophy Resource
The Philosophy Resource has been created and designed by members of the Philosophy Department at the University of Sussex to engage both teachers and students in secondary education with recent philosophical research. As well as lecturers in Philosophy, the contributors to this site are all active philosophers in their own right, giving conference papers around the world, publishing articles in international journals, and writing books. The Philosophy Resource has been created to present some of the recent research in the department in ways in which would be helpful to Philosophy teachers and students in secondary schools. We hope it compliments and illuminates the various Philosophy curricula taught at secondary school, but we also hope it is interesting in its own right.
David Edmonds and Nigel Warburton set up their Philosophy Bites podcast in 2007. The podcasts feature leading philosophers discussing a wide range of philosophical issues, from ethics to aesthetics to metaphysics, in a lively, informal, personal way.
The Institute of Philosophy
The Institute of Philosophy's aim is to promote and facilitate high quality research in philosophy, making it available to the widest possible audience both inside and outside the UK's academic community. The Institute is continuing to expand in terms of European, US and UK collaborations, as well as in terms of the number of post-doctoral Research Fellows, Visiting Professorial Fellows, and Research Staff.
