Arabella Graves

“The course at Aston University is fantastic because it brings together theory and practical application with fascinating real-life data collected by the Institute. The teaching is excellent, and the inspiring passion of the tutors is contagious! I really felt like they were investing in each of us throughout the year. The course has a broad range of topics within forensic linguistics whilst still being able to really get into the detail of the language and focus on areas that interest you most. It has been the most exciting year of my study to date.”
