Research overview

Research facilities


I took a three-year break after finishing my undergraduate degree but realised that my passion lay in research, more specifically, linguistics, and I am glad that I came back to study at Nottingham as the postgraduate community here is friendly, active, and open. I am also lucky to have two excellent supervisors who support and push me and work with the University to provide me with many opportunities to develop professionally – be that teaching, skills workshops, or helping run an academic journal. My favourite part of being a PhD researcher is the supportive environment that is created by the postgraduate researchers – everyone is passionate about their research and there is always someone around to discuss new ideas with.
