About

Doing a PhD in English Language and Applied Linguistics (Distance Learning) from University of Birmingham allows you to study while remaining in your resident country, keeping in contact with your supervisor via email and skype.

Overview

This is a perfect way to study, especially if you are interested in relating research work to your current professional environment.

Extensive online research training is provided in the first year of the programme and, whilst there is no requirement to spend any time in Birmingham, you are encouraged to visit for short periods, if possible. These visits provide valuable opportunities for face-to-face supervision, to meet other PhD students and to make use of the library and other research and training opportunities. 

There are two English Language and Applied Linguistics (Distance Learning) programmes from University of Birmingham: a standard programme and a modular programme. Both programmes involve regular contact with a supervisor by email and/or Skype. There is no assessed taught component, but students follow online research training modules.

Career

Birmingham's English Language and Linguistics postgraduates develop a broad range of transferable skills that are highly valued by employers, particularly in relation to verbal and written communication. They also develop crucial skills in organisation, time management, analysis and interpretation of information.

Programme Structure

Modules include:

  • Module 1 - Subject-focused work, to include some research training and preparation related to the subject, such as empirical work, literature searches, and research methodology.
  • Module 2 - Structured research and writing on the research topic. It may be linked in a linear way to Module 1, or the connection may be looser.
