Course content

This is an interdisciplinary social science training programme designed to prepare you for further research in the workplace or for MPhil/PhD study.

The programme covers ontology, epistemology, quantitative and qualitative techniques, and advanced methods masterclasses alongside substantive courses in the area of applied linguistics. You will also carry out an independent dissertation, putting into practice the methods and theoretical concepts you have been taught.

The programme provides a particularly strong environment for theoretically informed, interdisciplinary and socially engaged research.

Information for international students

If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests.
