Hi! I'm struggling to understand what the difference is between the psychology, philosophy and linguists course and the experimental psychology course at Oxford University. I would appreciate it if you could help me understand it! Thanks in advance

EP is the scientific study of philosophy - as suggested in the name, you will engage in experimental verification of relevant psychological phenomena. PPL has less emphasis on the empirical aspects and more on the philosophy of mind and language and how these relate to the core areas of linguistics and psychology as a whole.

If you want to be experimenting on humans/mice/zebrafish EP would be more relevant. If you like armchair psychology and/or are interested in linguistics, PPL is the better option. EP is I believe British Psychological Society accredited, whereas I'm not sure if PPL is - this may be relevant depending on your long term goals.
