    I'm looking into the Msc in Philosophy of the University of Edinburgh at the moment and hope someone can answer a question I have about it.
    I've noticed that most (if not all) of the philosophy courses you can choose from as a postgraduate are shared with undergraduate courses. Does this have any effect on the depth of the material, quality of discussions in class etc.? I would prefer to have classes with just postgraduates, but I am not sure to what extent it really makes a difference. And are the courses really the same for postgraduates, or are they examined differently (like with longer essays)?

    I would also appreciate hearing about any experiences with studying philosophy at the University of Edinburgh in general!
