For MA applications, a first or upper-second class honours degree in a relevant subject or equivalent. For PhD applications, an MA in Linguistics or a closely related field is highly desirable.
Months of entry
English Language and Linguistics (ELL), founded in 2010, is the newest department of the School of European Culture and Languages (SECL). ELL is a dynamic and growing department with a vibrant research culture. We specialise in experimental and theoretical linguistics. In particular, our interests focus on quantitative and experimental research in speech and language processing, variation and acquisition, but also cover formal areas such as syntax, as well as literary stylistics. In addition to English and its varieties, our staff work on French, German, Greek, Romani, Francoprovençal, Korean and Russian.
