About

If you're ready to take your expertise in Languages and Applied Linguistics into a postgraduate research degree, then the University of Portsmouth is the perfect place to fulfil your ambition.

Overview

Our Languages and Applied Linguistics research investigates how words are used in different contexts, and how language influences social phenomena and identity. We're looking at how language – particularly English – can drive economic and social development, and how international companies and organisations are taught multiple languages. We're identifying how language is used in different ways such as to express ideas and empower the marginalised, and exploring how technology is changing the international translation industry.

As a postgraduate research degree student, you'll be based within the School of Languages and Linguistics (SLAL) – one of the largest departments of its kind in the UK. You'll develop your subject-specific skills as a researcher, make ambitious steps towards your future career, and contribute to our research community. Throughout your research, you'll be under the supervision of internationally-recognised researchers. You'll also receive support from our supervisory team, the Graduate School and the Centre for European and International Studies Research (CEISR).

Our staff are experts in applied linguistics, sociolinguistics, language education, translation, international development, African studies, American studies, European studies and East Asian studies.

Support and facilities

When you join us, you'll be supported by our Graduate School, alongside your assigned supervisory team, who'll help you get the most from our facilities. The Graduate School will help you become part of our thriving, collaborative research community, and help grow your skills as a researcher through the Graduate School Development Programme, which offers training, workshops and events.

You can use our site licences for Sketch Engine and Lexis Nexis. You can also access our Televic Interpreter Training Suite, which includes specialist tools for professional simultaneous and consecutive interpreting.

What can a postgraduate research degree do for my career?

Once you complete your postgraduate research degree, you'll be a highly-skilled researcher with the knowledge and skills to make an impact in many different industries.

Your postgraduate research qualification demonstrates to potential employers that you're an intelligent, capable and motivated person, with provable abilities and experience in critical thinking, problem-solving, project management, communication, leadership and creativity.
