What is the teaching and learning environment like in Applied Linguistics?

Can you tell me what I can expect on the Applied Linguistics course and what makes it stand out from other Universities?

Our learning experience is built around applying cutting-edge research to solve real-world problems. You’ll engage with many real-world datasets, and work on many projects that try to address problems connected to language and communication and culture in those datasets. A large portion of our assessment is centred on independent, student- led research projects. So from the very start of your programme, you’ll often do research on topics that you select to address language issues that are relevant to your intellectual interests.

Warwick has a really great worldwide reputation, and is always in the top 3 for most employable students. What's unique about our department is our focus on research, many students find a passion in working with real life data sets from the first day of class. Not many other universities offer experience in research skills until your final year, but here we start from your very first term in year 1.
