Linguistics

This programme offers students the opportunity to focus in detail on a chosen area of the subject, while still being able to take some taught courses. The course is intended for those who already have a good background in Linguistics, typically from undergraduate study; the main part of the programme involves students writing a dissertation, and they should have an idea of the topic or area that students would like to write about when they apply; students are given support in developing this topic during the year by an appointed supervisor and by dedicated training in research methodology.
