"I have found the philosophy PhD programme in NUI Galway to be one which fosters the opportunity for a depth of research into one's particular area of interest by providing the creative freedom and expert supervisory guidance to fully explore that area. The department staff are all specialists of the highest calibre in their fields of interest which are diverse enough that any prospective philosophical enquiry can be accommodated"
