Your subject

Whether you want to learn a language, learn about language or enhance your English language, academic and communication skills, we have a course for you.

Learn about language

Our degree programmes give you the opportunity to explore language from a diverse range of perspectives, while developing your own communication skills.

At undergraduate level you can study English Language and Linguistics.

At postgraduate level, we offer an MA in Applied Linguistics for Language Teaching. Whether you are already an experienced language teacher or just starting out in a new career, this degree will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to improve your professional teaching practice.

Our MA by Research route offers you the opportunity to work closely with one of subject specialists on a project of your own choosing. This is the ideal way to explore your interests under the guidance of a professional researcher, and provides preparation for those who wish to go on to study for a PhD.
