We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
As one of the largest Linguistics and English Language departments in the UK, we offer a wide range of postgraduate programmes. We pride ourselves on high quality teaching and our students have access to our research through our teaching. New ideas and developments in research feed directly into what you will learn on your programme. For over 40 years we have been known internationally for innovative qualitative and quantitative research on language that advances both theory and practical applications. We have a state-of-the-art phonetics laboratory and cutting-edge eye-tracking and EEG equipment for psycholinguistic research. We are one of the world’s top centres for corpus linguistics and its applications and we are internationally known for our work in fields such as critical discourse analysis, language testing, literacy research and cognitive linguistics. More recently, we have developed our expertise in sociophonetics, forensic linguistics, business communication and intercultural communication. We are committed to high quality teaching - we like our students to have access to our research through our courses. New ideas and developments feed directly into what our students learn. Some of our staff have received awards for teaching and we constantly strive to improve.
