Developing students' potential for independent thought and intellectual creativity Developing students' potential for independent thought and intellectual creativity

Our Philosophy courses are ranked in the top 10 of the UK (2014 Guardian University Guide). We have a long-established reputation for our lively, stimulating and welcoming atmosphere, with a close interaction between teaching and research.

Our lecturers are highly experienced and active in research. Their specialised findings are the central focus of many taught modules, giving our students direct insight into the latest philosophical understanding and cutting-edge debates.

Our students also benefit from an especially high number of contact hours with academic staff – one of the reasons we received 100 per cent student satisfaction ratings in the 2013 National Student Survey.

67% of research in Philosophy was rated 4* (world leading) or 3* (internationally excellent) according to the Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), a major Government analysis of university research quality. Additionally, the impact of the department’s research was rated 8th in the UK in the Times Higher Education REF2014 rankings.

Philosophy graduates leave with skills in analysis and argument, presentation and teamwork that are highly sought after in a wide range of professions.
