‎Undergraduate study

Here in the School of PEP, we believe strongly in the value of looking at the social world from an interdisciplinary perspective. Studying with us will allow you to:

  • Grasp the interaction of the political, economic and ethical issues of the day
  • Develop a variety of intellectual tools to confront the real world in all its complexity and diversity
  • Graduate with a broad range of transferable skills - your passport to a successful career or numerous postgraduate study options

You will join one of the finest groups of academics and students in the country. You will have the chance to study not just topics in the three disciplines, but also genuinely interdisciplinary modules. Most of all, you'll engage with your peers and teachers on an unforgettable intellectual journey.

Come and join us!

‌I felt like part of something from the very beginning. I don't know any other course that offers such a sense of community. I really have made friends for life and had great fun doing it!

Rosie, PPE

For me the variety that PPE offers is amazing, and you get to tailor your degree to your own strengths and interests far more than you could in a single discipline

Cameron, PPE

The breadth of module choices offered within the School is second to none. The programme offers so much flexibility, and allows me to focus on my own areas of interest

Helen, Philosophy and Politics

I enjoyed contributing to the Club of PEP, a student-run organisation whose role in developing a unique sense of friendship and community is difficult to overemphasize
