Our PhD in Linguistics programme, which is offered on both a part-time and a full-time basis, is aimed at students with a substantial background in a subject related to Linguistics or Human Language Technology who wish to establish an expertise in their area of interest.
For this research-based course, successful candidates are typically first enrolled for an MPhil and can progress to PhD status following a successful evaluation at the end of their 1st (if studying full-time) or 2nd (if studying part-time) year of study.
The regulations governing the PhD in Linguistics, including details of the procedure for transferring after the first year, can be found here.
