Course summary

While the majority of your time is spent conducting your own research, you are also part of the life and culture of the Department.

In year 1 you undertake research training with your fellow students and staff, giving you invaluable insights into academic and research life as well as helping you to develop both general and subject-specific research skills. You might also audit some Masters-level classes to enhance your knowledge and skills. This training programme is designed at an individual level in consultation with the supervisor(s).

Throughout your three years you also engage with other researchers through Departmental seminars, activities organised by research groups, specialised training events, conferences, and collaborative events with national or international research partners.

You have access to top quality research facilities. We have dedicated laboratories for psycholinguistics (including eye tracking equipment, head turn facility, e-prime, Matlab) and forensic speech science (providing access to authentic forensic case materials, automatic speech recognition software, and speech analysis software). We also have a brand new professional-level recording suite. All postgraduates in Language and Linguistic Science have access to the facilities available in the Humanities Research Centre.

Your research progress is monitored through regular meetings with your supervisor(s), biannual meetings of your full thesis advisory panel, and a formal review each year with an independent progression panel.
