    Hi there.

    I have a Philosophy Interview at Southampton university. I have applied for Pol/phil, however the interview is being taken by a Philosophy tutor so I'm guessing it'll be weighted towards this subject. What kind of questions can I expect?

    I've never studied Philosophy, I only have a personal interest in it. I'm currently reading lots of philosophy texts. I referenced Marx and Rosseau in my PS - am I likley to get more questions about them? How general is the interview likely to be?

    Cheers TSR

    In what way did you reference them? It is obvious that your knowledge will be very basic hence you applying to learn in depth. Own up and say that you are looking forward to study who you refered to further as you only have a very basic idea of their works.
