The Philosophy Centre in the Radcliffe Infirmary building on Woodstock Road acts as a focal point for the Faculty’s activities and contains, as well as lecturing and teaching space, a Graduate Computing Room and a Graduate Common Room. A wireless network runs throughout the Centre.
The Centre also contains the Philosophy Library, with over 25,000 volumes, a collection of approximately 80 periodicals, online access to many philosophical databases, and librarians trained in the specific bibliographic needs of philosophers. Many college libraries also have extensive holdings in philosophy.
Each term more than a dozen graduate classes and research seminars are organised by Faculty members in which graduate students are full and important participants.
Graduates are encouraged to organise their own seminars and reading groups, and they also run two societies: one invites distinguished speakers from the UK and around the world, while another gives graduates the opportunity to present papers to a graduate audience.
Each year there is an Oxford Graduate Philosophy Conference, in which most graduate philosophy students participate in some way.
The Faculty runs a Graduate Teaching Scheme to provide teaching experience for those DPhil students who intend to pursue an academic career.
