Training and support in the Linguistics and English Language at The University of Edinburgh
Each research student receives supervision by at least two members of academic staff, who will meet regularly with you to discuss your progress and wider issues in your field of study. This may include discussion of journal articles or books, and preparation for conference presentations, as well as discussion of your dissertation or draft chapters of your thesis.
Most research students are assigned to a research group, each of which hosts regular research activities.
