Course content

Explore your own interests in English language and linguistics, supported by the expertise of our staff.

You’ll be allocated two supervisors, with additional staff members available if necessary. We have supervisors with experience in most areas of English language and linguistics including, for example, multilingualism, second language acquisition, comparative and theoretical syntax, Romance linguistics, linguistic minorities, the construction of linguistic, ethnic and cultural identities, and empirical approaches to the study of language.

You’ll conduct your research in a collaborative environment with strong links to a number of other centres in the University and the wider community. We host and take part in many research oriented events for staff and postgraduate students, including our regular Faculty and departmental research seminars and international conferences. Our seminars will give you the chance to present papers in a supportive setting.

We’re also key contributors to the Anglia Ruskin-Cambridge University (ARC) Romance Linguistics Seminar, who organise many talks you’ll be welcome to attend, or even contribute to. These events, along with our online environment, will help you connect with other research students from a range of disciplines.

Information for international students

If English is not your first language, you'll require a minimum IELTS score of 6.5, with a minimum of 5.5 in each component (or equivalent test).
