United Kingdom 2019-20 Programme

Philosophy of Religion and Ethics

What to Expect on the Day

These are the most highly respected and popular events for A level Philosophy, Religion and Ethics students in the UK. Academy Conferences has a long-standing partnership with the universities of Oxford and Aberdeen, with professors from both institutions on the programme this year. The opportunity to listen to leading academics is a well-established route to inspire independent learning and improve exam performance and ensures the highest quality provision. Every student will be provided with their own printed copy of bespoke notes to give them the edge in exams. There will also be an opportunity to discuss Oxford and Aberdeen entrance exams and degree courses.

During the sessions students will be encouraged to contribute, vote on twitter polls and provide feedback. A full debate will take place during the day and students participate.

Join us on Snapchat – aconferences – for your daily philosophical thought of the day, plus access to free resources.

Conference Fees


An early bird fee of £17 per student if booked and paid by the 30th of September, or £23 anytime after. We have access to sponsorship for students wishing to attend but for whom the cost is a significant challenge for their families. Please contact us for further details.


An early bird fee of £17 per teacher if booked and paid by the 30th of September, or £23 anytime after. Unaccompanied teachers attending for CPD to pay £195.


These events fill quickly but we appreciate that many schools need time to collect money from students.


Bookings for a conference are usually made by a teacher or other representative from a school, and students attend conference with their school group accompanied by a supervising teacher. The school is invoiced for the number of students and staff attending (if schools require payment from students or parents for attendance, these payments are made to the school).

Please note that we cannot accept bookings for unaccompanied students, and all students attending are required have a supervising teacher, or parent, with them. This is a workplace health and safety issue, as we do not have the necessary staff to provide supervision of students at the conference, or during meal breaks. [If a school is not attending, and a student from that school wishes to attend independently, they can do so, but they must be accompanied by a supervising adult who is charged at the student rate, and who makes the booking]

To book with us fill in your full details below:


Your booking will be confirmed immediately and invoices must be met unless you notify us 3 weeks before conference.

Essential Viewing!

Oxford university has launched a you tube site with FREE new resources designed for use in school. This is the beginning of a major out-reach initiative.

The first three videos are short introductions to the idea of special divine action. The project leader, and commentator in each short video, is Dr Andrew Pinsent, who is Research Director at the IRC in Oxford and a popular speaker for Academy Conferences. He is a former CERN physicist with doctorates in both Particle Physics and Philosophy. He is currently a member of the Theology/Philosophy faculty at Oxford.
