Post-graduate study in the CMT
The Centre for Modern Thought is focusing increasingly on its pedagogical mission by offering sustained training for PhD students (following a format common in North America and Europe, where distinguished professors lecture on a weekly basis). Our ambition is to create a vital intellectual community for students who are also pursuing individual research projects and to offer them continuing training. We believe that students will benefit significantly from research-led teaching and collaborative work beyond the first year of post-graduate study, where most teaching remains introductory. The last seminar (led by Professor Fynsk and focusing on Kant and Heidegger) has brought together students from all levels of post-graduate study, as well as interested staff. The CMT thus offers a unique site for study in the British system of higher education.
Post-doctoral study in the CMT
A group of students in the CMT are currently undertaking their second doctoral programme through the CMT. These students have a non-resident status (which implies a significant discount in fees), and are thus able to pursue other professional activities in their home context while writing their PhD dissertations. Short residency is required, but students are finding that the conditions for work and community at Aberdeen are extremely beneficial and enjoyable (thus periodic visits to Aberdeen are attractive). Prospective students who would like to pursue such non-resident study should contact Professor Fynsk.
