PhD in Linguistics

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.


How to apply

Applications for our PhD programme can be made electronically through the University of Malta Admissions page. However, prospective students are advised to get in touch with some potential supervisor(s) at the Institute in order to discuss their research topic and proposal prior to submitting their application.
