"Welcome to the Philosophy department at the University of York. Our excellence in teaching and research is here to help you reach your personal goals. The research produced by the department is judged to be overwhelmingly of “international quality” (96%) and this is matched by our excellence in teaching.  We were delighted that our graduating class of 2017 had an overall satisfaction with their course of 95% in this years' National Student Survey - the best result amongst philosophy departments in the Russell Group of universities."
