This doctoral programme in Applied Linguistics is a four-year full-time programme which includes a combination of taught modules (in year 1 of the programme) and individual research, the principal component being the doctoral thesis. In tandem with the doctoral thesis, this programme aims to enhance the professional knowledge of language teachers and language professionals by focusing on the core features of language as a system (grammar, lexis, and phonology), language learning and acquisition, as well as language in its broader societal context. The taught modules will be offered in a face-to-face environment and blended learning will be used to offer flexibility for learners.

A range of pedagogical strategies will be deployed to promote active research-led learning and scholarship. Residential summer schools will also be a key component of the programme and will allow students to engage with high profile Applied Linguists and also to present their own research, with the aim of fostering their development as independent researchers....
