Course Summary

MA by Research in Applied Linguistics enables you to undertake a project led by your own passions and interests, without committing to a full PhD. This programme is suitable preparation for doctoral work, but a proven ability to conduct independent research in the field will also improve your employment prospects in English language teaching and outside academia in the media, publishing or government bodies. You will be closely supervised by two experienced academics with relevant expertise throughout the course of the project. This involves fortnightly meetings in your first term and meetings at regular agreed intervals thereafter.

We take care to ensure that each MA by Research student has the expert supervision required to complete their project within the candidature period. You will have a minimum of two supervisors based in the Department. Upon receipt of your application, we will identify supervisors whose research expertise matches your chosen topic. You will usually meet your supervisors once a month, and possibly more often at critical stages of your candidature, including preparing for final submission. MA by Research students are eligible to apply for an upgrade to a PhD within the first year of their candidature, if they demonstrate the ability to perform at doctoral level.
