The Philosophy Helpdesk is a student-run initiative funded by the Philosophy Department. The helpdesk is run by 3rd-year and 4th-year philosophy majors who work as tutors and help their peers (enrolled in a courses offered by the Philosophy Department) with assignments Рincluding but not limited to structuring arguments for a paper, feedback on drafts, concept clarification, and homework sums.

An appointment sheet is circulated every week with the details of the tutors. Each available slot is of 20 minutes but a student can book multiple slots with the helpdesk. In a typical semester, the helpdesk employs approximately 5 students among the 3rd-year and 4th-year philosophy majors as tutors. The helpdesk is supervised by the student representatives of the Philosophy Department or an in-charge appointed by them.


A typical email you’d get from the Philosophy Helpdesk:
