London School of Philosophy

London School of Philosophy

The London School of Philosophy was founded in 2010 by a group of seven friendly and experienced lecturers formerly employed by Birkbeck College, following the reduction of the Birkbeck Philosophy Certificate programme.

Our aim is to provide philosophy classes of the highest quality for thoughtful people in the London area. Our courses cover key areas of philosophy in an accessible and professional way.

We are proudly independent and receive no government funding, but by keeping administration costs down, are able to offer our courses at competitive rates.

Since 2011, we have been working in association with Conway Hall.
