The British Postgraduate Philosophy Association (BPPA), founded in 2000, is the national association for all postgraduate philosophy students (Masters and/or Doctoral-level) in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.
Run by an annually elected volunteer committee, which is comprised of postgraduate philosophy students across the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland, the BPPA aims to foster and maintain an active postgraduate community to provide advice and support (of various kinds) to all philosophy postgraduate students in Britain.
To this aim, the BPPA, amongst other things, i) organises and hosts an Annual Conference and Careers Advice Day, ii) organises and hosts bi-annual Masterclasses, iii) is creating and maintaining a network of National Philosophy Postgraduate Student Representatives for the BPPA in philosophy departments across Britain, and iv) offers postgraduate student representation in Britain by providing a Postgraduate Student Representative to sit on the committee meetings of the British Philosophical Association.
