I’m hoping to apply to a Russel Group university (that would be the dream) but Cambridge and Oxford are pretty much not even feasible due to me not getting all A’s and A*’s at GCSE, and due to the ridiculously high entry requirements from Cambridge. I really just want to find the best course for philosophy as I believe it really is one of the most important subjects there is. Thank you in advance!

I've heard that McDonald's constantly rank quite high on the league tables, I kid. Bristol, Sussex, Nottingham, York exc there's many options so long as you smash your A levels =)

From what I have seen at open days etc, Warwick has an extremely strong philosophy department, especially for continental philosophy.

It depends on which flavour of philosophy you are most interested. I chose my institution to work with one bloke in a specific area of Indian phil, for example.

St Andrews for sure. Surprisingly low entry standards (AAB), and it's consistently ranked either 1st or 2nd best uni for Philosophy in the UK, and the uni is 1st for student satisfaction

Since this is for undergraduate, the following may not be as relevant, but it's no more irrelevant than the Russell Group quality:

http://www.philosophicalgourmetreport.com/overall.asp

http://www.philosophicalgourmetrepor...epartments.asp

http://www.philosophicalgourmetreport.com/breakdown.asp

These rankings incidentally are compiled by discussion with a broad range of currently active Philosophers in each region (and outside) regarding the quality of their PhD programmes and individual research areas, respectively. The latter is probably the more relevant section...

You may want to note for example Birkbeck is considered one of the top universities in the world (on par with Cambridge and MIT) for feminist philosophy, by philosophers. Additionally Bristol for Logic and Philosophy of Mathematics, and York for Philosophy of Art/Aesthetics...

What's feminist philosophy?
Philosophy from the perspective of feminism, and the philosophy of feminism. I'd suggest looking around online for more information, or making a new thread to discuss it in the philosophy forum; it's beyond the scope of this thread, and this thread is nearly a year old anyway
