About

The Philosophy MPhil/PhD at UCL provides a route for students to produce a thesis of original research under the guidance of their supervisor(s). The Philosophy programme is offered by University College London (UCL).

Overview

Those who have not already completed the MPhil Stud (or equivalent) are required to take graduate modules assessed by several papers in their first year to upgrade to PhD status.

Our research is consistently ranked among the best in the country. The Philosophy department has a lively and flourishing postgraduate community, and advanced research students are offered opportunities to gain teaching experience. 

We enjoy collaborative connections with other London universities, and the activities of the nearby Royal Institute of Philosophy, the Aristotelian Society, and the University of London Institute of Philosophy.

Careers

Recent graduates with a PhD in Philosophy from University College London have gained prestigious academic fellowships as well as postdoctoral placements in the UK and elsewhere in Europe (for example at the University of Oxford, the University of London, University of Cambridge, Sheffield University, University of Antwerp, and the Institute of Philosophy, UNAM, Mexico). Others have gone on to lectureships in the UK (for example at the University of Oxford, University of York, LSE) and overseas at the University of Cape Town and the University of Melbourne.

Those who have not pursued an academic career have entered a variety of professions, including law, public policy, and publishing.
