Our research is consistently ranked among the best in the country (first in the UK in the 2008 RAE). The department has a lively postgraduate community. Postgraduate students are very much part of the life of the department. We are located in the centre of the rich philosophical life of Bloomsbury and have collaborative connections with other London universities, and the nearby activities of the Royal Institute of Philosophy, the University of London Institute of Philosophy and the Aristotelian Society.

Advanced research students are offered opportunities to gain teaching experience within the department. We have an excellent record of placing our graduates in academic jobs.
