The Aphil master was a great introduction to analytic philosophy and to research in general. The focus of its courses on philosophical rigour, and the variety of the courses offered made it a perfect choice for me.
The APhil program is a rigorous and exciting intellectual community of graduate students, professors and visitors. The Department lies in the center of a beautiful and vibrant city. The program provides a very solid grounding in analytic philosophy. In my opinion, it's one of the best places in the world to be a student of analytic philosophy.
Undoubtedly the Aphil master was an excellent preparation for academic research. As a master student I benefitted enormously from participation in the various activities of the Logos group. I can’t recommend enough this course to those interested in pursuing advance graduate work.

Aphil Master provided me with a remarkable opportunity to broaden my knowledge of philosophy. It also sharpened my skills in critical thinking, research and in argumentation. I highly recommend Aphil Master to any young philosopher interested in pursuing a PhD.
For me the Aphil Master was, first and foremost, an opportunity to understand what it means to do research. These things may seem trifle, but they are bread and butter of research in general. Crucially, you simply cannot learn them from people who don't do research themselves. This might be the single most important advantage of the Aphil Master.

I can confidently say that the Aphil master’s was THE reason why I felt that I could have a successful research career in philosophy. I had unique opportunities to network and interact with accomplished professional philosophers, getting a glimpse of what my professional future would look like. As a student at Aphil, I received plenty of encouragement and support from mentors and coleagues, and I formed personal and professional relationships that last to this day.
I personally think that the Aphil master's in analytic philosophy is truly world-class...
As an Aphil graduate, I can certainly say that this course prepared me really well for pursuing a doctoral degree afterwards, and the analytical and problem-solving skills I developed throughout the degree have also proven invaluable now that I am working as a software engineer. I highly recommend this course. It's an excellent choice for students who are passionate about philosophy and want to prepare themselves for a successful career in academia or beyond.

My experience in the APhil Master has been fully positive. The professors, my classmates, and the whole research environment has been truly motivating, and that is why I decided to pursue an academic career, which I had never considered before.
There's no doubt that the Aphil master prepared me exceptionally well to carry out original research in analytic philosophy. Because of its structure and taught subjects, the master teaches you how to raise and answer the most pressing questions in analytic philosophy.
Overall, my experience in the Master was truly life-changing: I could not have made a better decision after my undergraduate studies. To any student interested in analytic philosophy, I fervently recommend it!
The Aphil master is a highly recommended option for those who want to enlarge and improve their philosophical knowledge and skills. Guided by the teachers, leading contributors to those debates, you get familiar with the contents, you learn how to navigate the increasingly vast philosophical literature and you learn how to make an informed contribution to those debates yourself.
The Aphil master offers the best study program for those who want to delve into analytical philosophy. You will learn how to do research in philosophy, and you will also develop the communicative and argumentative skills that are pivotal to successfully express and defend your ideas.
When I finished my degree I was unsure about my future. Not many masters offered a curriculum that covered my interests. Fortunately, a very good teacher told me about LOGOS and APhil. I enrolled and a year later I had the most enjoyable and enriching academic experience of my life.
Coming from a background in engineering, the APhil master was my first proper training in philosophy. This turned out to be the ideal training to later pursue a PhD in philosophy. I highly recommend the APhil masters to those interested in pursuing a career in analytic philosophy.
If you think philosophy is more about being able to think (and think properly) than about being able to store other people's thoughts, you'll definitely have as great an experience as the one I had in the APhil Master. Doing philosophy is fun, though it can be quite hard, and that's the point where it gets rewarding. So here's my suggestion - if the courses are getting hard, you better befriend your classmates and go to La Ovella Negra to talk your worries out over a cold beer!
The master's program is a great choice both for students looking to advance their studies in analytic philosophy and for those who wish to make their way into the field. The courses, taught by leading researchers in philosophy, provide an in-depth access to contemporary debates in the analytic sphere.
