BA Linguistics (International Programme)

UCAS Code: Q101

Do you find language and communication fascinating?  Do you enjoy solving puzzles? Would you like to learn about the languages of the world, and in doing so learn about how the human mind works? Do you have broad interests, from the language arts through the sciences?

The BA Linguistics (International Programme) gives you an education in various aspects of language. At the core are courses about sentence structure (syntax), meaning (semantics and pragmatics) and pronunciation (phonetics and phonology), but you will also be given the opportunity to explore other themes, such as language acquisition or language processing. 

The programme includes a year abroad in your third year at one of our partner institutions.

Students frequently comment on the friendly atmosphere and accessible academic staff. The BA Linguistics programme had a 93% overall student satisfaction rate (sector average: 88) in the National Student Survey. Our graduates report an above average employment rate and starting salary.
