Hi!

I'm currently a Psychiatrist in Brazil, but I want to pursue a postgraduate path into Philosophy. Since I have little formal training in the field, I believe it would be more appropriate applying for a conversion course. I have found some options:

- Durham: Philosophy Postgraduate Diploma;
- KCL: Philosophy of Medicine & Psychiatry, MA;
- St. Andrews: Conversion in Philosophy;
- UCL: History and Philosophy of Science, MA;

I would like to know if anyone has any information about these programs or knows about other options or has any thoughts about which path should I pursue.

Thanks!

For KCL and UCL, those courses are quite specific in scope and may not generalise to the broader realm of philosophy as well. In particular, HPS is actually a separate department from the philosophy department at UCL. If you are specifically wanting to focus on those areas then they are reasonable options, but if you want a broader background then one of the others may be more suitable. That said, the main MA Philosophy programme at KCL takes students from other disciplines as "conversion" students, although they note "conversion students should show evidence of an interest in and aptitude for the subject".
