Detailed advice for international students is available here:
This programme is designed primarily for graduates with a background related to linguistics and/or psychology who wish to develop their knowledge of current research on language acquisition (first, second, bilingual, and impaired) and language change from a cognitive perspective and from the point of view of current linguistic theories.
The strengths of our programme are its scope (with equal emphasis on first and second language acquisition and bilingualism), interdisciplinary (teaching staff drawn from Linguistics, Psychology and Informatics) and skill-oriented training (through methodology courses, lab sessions and project work).
You will be taught through a combination of lectures, tutorial sessions, project work and written assignments.
The programme provides training in experimental research skills which will enable students to carry out novel research in these fields.
