The Philosophy Department at UCL is one of the best places to study philosophy in the UK. We are a friendly and dynamic department, with strengths in a broad range of areas including: 19th & 20th Century European Philosophy, Ancient Philosophy, Epistemology, Ethics, History of 20th Century Philosophy, Metaphysics, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Science and Political philosophy. 

The Department’s performance in the 2014  REF (Research Excellence Framework) was excellent. 46% of our submission was assessed at the top grade, 4*, which denotes “quality that is world-leading in terms of originality, significance and rigour”. Only two other philosophy departments in the UK had a higher percentage of their submission in this category. Research from all our academic staff was included in the assessment: View REF submissions and results information.
