    Cambridge without doubt, but they all have generally strong phil departments, at least for the Western stuff.

    Hello,, thanks for the answer. I know that cambridge would be the hardest uni to get into. So maybe I should choose another uni as a back up plan if i cant get into cambridge, which one better between glasgow and nottingham for philosophy degree? Beside that i also thinking about some other uni like st andrews and trinity college dublin

    It depends what you want from the department, really. The sort of 'basics' will be covered really well at any of those institutions (they are all very good institutions), but if you have a niche that you'd like to explore perhaps with a dissertation or with an eye on postgrad, then you need to consider specific members of staff and specific modules per institution.

    Honestly, you will do well out of any of those departments, then.

    I followed my current supervisor through from BA to PhD - wherever he goes, I go :laugh: I don't really want to give too much more away in public!
