    I'm currently applying for a philosophy masters specialising in the philosophy of mind, so a lot of it is crossed over with psychology. My undergraduate degree is in Psychology. How likely is it that I will accepted onto this course? Has anyone got any similar experience to share?

    I think it really helps if you've done at least a few philosophy courses. While you may specialise in the philosophy of mind, most general philosophy masters will require some breadth (i.e. requirements in practical philosophy like ethics and political philosophy, theoretical philosophy, history of philosophy). If you apply to these general philosophy masters programs, then you'll need to be able to show that you can handle graduate courses in other areas of philosophy too.
