UCL Department of Philosophy

In memoriam: Sam Clarke 

We are very sorry to report the recent death of our student Sam Clarke. Sam was on interruption of study, but was due to return to UCL to finish his BA in Philosophy.  

Sam was a student of intelligence and thoughtfulness, and we are very sorry that he has been lost to us so young. Many condolences go to his family and to his friends.

Research & PhDs


The department offers a range of modular degrees from undergraduate to research level. The modular basis gives our students the flexibility to study a breadth of topics. The department has strengths in a broad range of areas including: 19th & 20th Century Continental Philosophy, Ancient Philosophy, Epistemology, Ethics, History of 20th Century Philosophy, Metaphysics, Philosophy of Mathematics, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Science and Political philosophy.

Excellent REF results:

The UCL Philosophy Department had a remarkable performance in the 2014 REF (Research Excellence Framework). 46% of our submission was assessed at the top grade, 4*, denoting “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.
