    (As in how many credits does it amount to)

    Ideally answer if at ucl to confirm?

    Otherwise please say if the dissertation for philosophy at other unis counts for 2 or not.

    Thanks

    You're gonna have to rephrase that question in a way that makes sense. Count for what? The Dissertation is worth 0.5 CU (one eighth of your final year).

    Counts for..." how many modules". Though yes I could be clearer that I'm asking specifically how many credits.

    So are you sure that it only counts for 0.5 cu at ucl? Are you a student there?

    It just surprises me because it counts for 2 modules most other philosophy courses, and there aren't many modules in the ucl third year. Also it could be that there are 2 essays as part of it.

    No I'm not a student there but it says on the website. https://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-st...dules/phil3047

    I don't think the website is clear enough.

    Definitely it doesn't state how many credits it counts for. It seems like you can choose to do a single essay in either term 1 or 2 though I cannot be sure.
