    Description

    Studying German in combination with English Language and Linguistics enables you to learn another language and gain an understanding of how language itself works.

    German is one of Europe's most important languages for business and culture. Worldwide, it is the second-most widely used language on the internet (W3Techs 2014). It is also frequently used as a second language in Eastern Europe, serving as a means of communication across international boundaries. Fluency in the German language, combined with knowledge of political and cultural developments in the German-speaking world, opens up career opportunities in many areas of Europe.

    Along with our other European language departments, German has native-speaker language assistants and state-of-the art computing and audio-visual facilities. Many classes are taught in German, and you have the opportunity to spend a year studying, teaching English or working in a German-speaking country.

    Language is fundamental to everything we do: it helps us communicate ideas, express our feelings, and present ourselves to different audiences. English Language and Linguistics is therefore an ideal complement to the subject of German, where an understanding of how language works is important.

    Combining theoretical and practical elements, English Language and Linguistics explores both the structure of language and its multifaceted relationship with culture and society. The choice of topics covered is very wide, including areas such as sociolinguistics, language acquisition, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, phonetics and phonology, morphology, language learning and teaching, language impairments, literary stylistics and critical and cultural theory. You can also study creative writing and media writing.

    Some of our joint honours students follow a strand reflecting their specific interests: for example, language teaching options for those considering careers in education, or stylistics options for those following a literary programme. Others enjoy English Language and Lingustics as an absorbing and intellectually stimulating discipline in its own right.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
