About

Most of the research in theoretical and applied Linguistics at the University of Surrey focuses on the consequences of linguistic diversity.

Overview

Why choose this course

The School of Literature and Languages is internationally regarded and our research takes a strong multi-disciplinary approach, and covers languages and linguistic settings all over the world. 

The postgraduate Linguistics research at the University of Surrey looks at the grammatical structure of languages and the ways in which language-related research can have practical applications, with applied linguistics research considering topics such as multiculturalism and mobility, multilingual practices in business and educational contexts, intercultural pragmatics, second and foreign language learning and teaching, lexicography and corpus linguistics. 

We’re also home to the Surrey Morphology Group, a linguistics research centre that focuses on theoretical morphology, morphological interfaces, linguistic typology, and documenting and describing languages. 

We’ve been awarded over £2m in external funding since 2012, with funding coming from the European Research Council, the Economic and Social Research Council, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the British Academy and the Leverhulme Trust, among others. We’re part of a number of externally funded doctoral training partnerships, and you might be able to benefit from a studentship from us if you’re suitable qualified.
