Philosophy climbs the league table

Posted on Wednesday 5th June 2013

The Philosophy department is up 13 places in the new Guardian league table.

The department has been ranked 15th in the Guardian's University guide 2014. This is a huge step upwards from the last year's 28th position. According to the Guardian, we have made significant improvements in the overall satisfaction with the course, in the so-called Value-added score which measures the effectiveness of our teaching, and in careers after 6 months. This has helped us to come ahead of the philosophy departments at York, Sheffield, Nottingham, and Reading in the new league table.
