Applied Linguistics

The programme is designed to enhance specialised linguistic knowledge through academic study and research. The programme is suitable for all those interested in exploring how linguistic knowledge can be applied to everyday real-life phenomena such as language learning, language policy or language processing. The course emphasises state-of-the-art research methodology appropriate for conducting linguistic research projects, using a wide range of linguistic research methods. We are interested in hearing from students doing projects that link linguistic research with real-life language use .

Entry requirements

Applicants are expected to have a good Honours degree or a Master's degree (MA, MSc or MEd) in a relevant discipline (eg MA degree in applied linguistics, psychology, English, English for academic purposes, education, modern languages, linguistics) although candidates with other evidence of ability to succeed at PhD level will also be considered. If English is not your first language, we do expect you to be able to demonstrate a high level of proficiency. The minimum requirement for PhD in Applied Linguistics is IELTS 7.0 with no less than 6.5 in Reading and Writing, and no less than 6.0 in Listening and Speaking.
