Course Summary

We offer a world-leading research environment aimed at understanding human communication, speech, language and cognition. Students have the opportunity to study within a unique interdisciplinary group of experimental psychologists, linguists, speech and language therapists and NHS-based clinicians. Our graduates have an excellent record of employment. We are at the forefront of research in human speech, language and communication investigating core issues in the development of spoken and written language, the cognitive bases of language in children and adults, the interrelationship of language with other cognitive systems. We also focus on impairments of language and communication across the lifespan and on clinical interventions. Postgraduate students use the skills they have acquired during their PhD training to follow a number of different career pathways. Many continue in academia as postdoctoral researchers and eventually full-time academics; others continue training or practising in related fields such as speech and language therapy or clinical and educational psychology.
