The Guardian’s 2022 Philosophy Rankings

The Guardian has released its rankings of UK universities at which to study philosophy.

The rankings are aimed at undergraduates. Here’s their description:

Unlike other league tables, the Guardian rankings focus on the things students care about, such as good teaching and job prospects, rather than basing them on academic research. We rank universities through nine different scores, which form a total out of 100. These include what students say about their teaching, feedback and the course itself in the annual National Student Survey. This year we combined 2021 and 2022 to reflect how universities responded to the pandemic. We also look at how big class sizes are through the student-to-staff ratio and how much universities spend on teaching per student, as well as students’ A-level grades and whether their academic performance improves at university (the value-added score), and how likely they are to continue with their course. There’s also data on how many students get graduate jobs 15 months after leaving university. This year, we used data from 2018/19 and 2019/20 to minimise the impact of the pandemic, although there is still some disruption relative to earlier cohorts.

And here are the rankings:

At The Guardian‘s page, you can sort the table by various criteria.
