Course summary

Research profile

We are one of the world’s leading philosophy departments for research.

In the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), Philosophy research at Edinburgh is ranked 2nd in Scotland and joint 7th in the UK (Times Higher Education, Rank order by GPA).

The department has close links with other subject areas within the University, such as psychology, linguistics, informatics, jurisprudence, politics and classics.

We are also home to EIDYN, a philosophical research centre that hosts multiple international conferences, workshops and visiting scholars every year.

Training and support

You will meet regularly with your supervisors, who will advise you on the steps to take towards producing your thesis.

All doctoral students are encouraged to participate in a weekly postgraduate work-in-progress research seminar, and to take advantage of regular professional development and research training seminars.

Most PhD and MPhil students will gain undergraduate teaching experience, for which you will be given training and mentoring.
