UCL Philosophy


Graduate Research Degrees

UCL offers two research graduate degrees in Philosophy: the MPhil Stud and the PhD.

The Philosophy MPhil Stud is a two-year (full-time) programme. Students complete coursework across a range of areas, and produce a substantial research thesis, preparing them for PhD-level research.

The Philosophy PhD is a three-year (full-time) programme. Most of our PhD students have completed our MPhil Stud, but it is possible to enrol on this course if you have obtained a similar qualification elsewhere.

The links, above, provide information about the programmes, funding opportunities, and the application process. Applicants (for either degree) must submit two writing samples
