Research in the School of Languages and Cultures

The School is committed to excellence in language-based research in a range of disciplines. Members of staff in the School conduct individual research, supervise postgraduate students, and collaborate on larger scale research projects, local, national and international and we seek to maximize the benefits gained from the specificity of research in each of the School's constituent sections, based in a language or a language group, while reaping the added value to be gained from comparative exchange and collaboration across the School. Our teaching at both undergraduate and MA level is informed by our research, and research skills form an integral part of students’ training. To find out more about Postgraduate study in the School of Languages and Cultures, please visit our Postgraduate Programmes pages.

The School has a thriving research community of academic staff, postdoctoral research fellows and postgraduate students. While we conduct research in a wide range of languages, disciplines and geographical regions, we are united by a commitment to accessing sources in the language, and to the study of language-based cultures.
