Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    Hey guys, I am applying to do Philosophy next year and was wondering if anyone who has done or is currently doing a Philosophy degreee could shed some light on the exams/coursework aspect of things. The reason being that I don't know if I should apply for courses that are more coursework based or exam based.

    Some questions I specifically have are: What do exams usually consist of? How long are they? Which of the two forms of examination is the most difficult? How long do you get for coursework?

    Any other information and advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
