We run two PhD programmes in the Department: the PhD in Applied Linguistics and the PhD in Applied Linguistics (Taught-Track & Thesis), both requiring 3-4 years on a
full-time basis and 5-6 years
During the first year, students on both programmes are required to attend two campus-based Applied Linguistics modules and one research-related module, in addition to regular discussions on their specialist topic with their supervisor.
Students on the taught-track programme are also assessed on three further research-related modules.
