Study with us

Postgraduate programmes in Applied Linguistics offered by the School of English are among the most popular in the UK.

We offer a number of innovative masters programmes, and there are over 40 research students currently registered with core CRAL staff. Find out more about current and recent students on our postgraduate research page.  

Postgraduate Studies

Masters (on-site)

Our Masters students attend all CRAL research seminars and are actively involved in the research community. CRAL provides a first-class environment for research training and career development and thus attracts particularly strong applicants at Masters and Research Degree level.

Our MA degree programmes


Research Degrees

We have a number of experts in Applied Linguistics who are interested to hear from potential research students with a view to supervising their topics. There is also a strong tradition of CRAL staff co-publishing high quality research with their postgraduate research students, who go on to forge their own successful careers in academic research.
