Admission to Arché is conditional upon admission to the St Andrews Philosophy PhD programme.
Applicants should follow the guidelines to be found on the Postgraduate Admissions Office page. Applicants who wish to join Arché should mention this fact in their covering letter.
Admission to Arché is not automatic upon acceptance to the St Andrews Philosophy PhD programme.
Arché aims at a running PhD student population of about 18 and is proactive in recruitment of new graduate student members
whenever it has prospective vacancies. Please be aware that the graduate intake to Arché often cannot be finalised before September
and some applicants may consequently
know of their admission to the St Andrews Philosophy PhD programme well in advance of a decision on their Arché application.
