Philosophy is taught on the de Havilland Campus at the University. de Havilland is home to four academic schools of study: Business, Law, Education and Humanities. Here you’ll also find our extensive Sports Village and our main performing arts venue; the Weston Auditorium.
In 2020, we opened our newest facility on the de Havilland Campus, the £12 million Enterprise Hub. This new building includes space for socialising, teaching and an Incubation Centre for supporting small businesses in their growth stage.
