Course summary

Overview

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.

Careers

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.

Employability

UCL Language and Cognition is a highly rated and regarded research environment. Recent graduates have typically been offered employment in the UK and internationally in academic posts, postdoctoral research, health services and third sector (voluntary) organisations, see our programme webpage for career destinations and testimonials.
