Welcome to The University of Birmingham Philosophy Society (PhilSoc)

PhilSoc is a student-led society, which is open to all. This is a group dedicated to weird questions and unsatisfactory answers: to the discussion of thought, knowledge, language, truth, logic, beauty, ethics, and love. 


You don’t have to study philosophy or know anything about it to join.


The main aim of the society is to provide an opportunity for social interaction outside of lectures. We focus on providing both social and academic events and activities throughout the year. 

Some examples of what we do: 

  • Think and Drink
  • Guest speaker talks 
  • Sober socials 
  • Bar crawls 
  • Trip abroad
  • Societies nights 


Sports Teams – we have a netball team in campus league, with regular training sessions, and the opportunity to play matches against other societies. 

Student support – we understand that university life can be challenging and difficult to settle into. As a committee, we aim to provide additional support to the student community, working alongside departmental and university-led welfare systems. 


To stay informed about upcoming events, you can follow us on Instagram (uobphilosophysoc) or Facebook!
