Is anyone currently studying at Glasgow able to shed some light on why the philosophy degree has fallen a fair bit in the uni rankings over the past couple of years?
I know the rankings should be taken with a pinch of salt but when I submitted my application for studying philosophy and theology, Glasgow was ranked at 15th for philosophy (complete university guide 2015 rankings). The league table for 2016 shows it dropped 13 places to 28th and for 2017 it has now dropped even further to 37th place.
I accepted my offer for philosophy and theology early last year and deferred entry until this year so I could take a gap year but because of the drop in the rankings its making me concerned about whether I have made the right choice of uni. in order to study my chosen degree subjects, especially as one of the biggest drops in its philosophy ranking was in relation to graduate prospects.
And actually passed?
