You should normally hold or expect to receive at least a good 2:1 or equivalent in your first degree with pre-requisite study of both (generative) syntax and (formal) semantics. We would expect you to have taken at last 40 credits (20 ECTS) in the areas of Syntax and Semantics before embarking on this programme.
Months of entry
The MA in Comparative Syntax & Semantics is aimed at students who have enough background in both syntax and semantics to know that they wish to specialise in those areas.
The programme focuses on the cross-linguistic perspective, allowing students to strengthen their knowledge of formal syntax and formal semantics.
Information for international students
If your first language is not English and your first degree was not taken in an English speaking country, you will need to show evidence that you meet our English Language requirements. We accept an IELTS score of 7, including 7 in both the written and oral assessment components.
