Applied Linguistics offers a fascinating opportunity to study the interaction between language and the real world.

You will be supervised by our expert staff, who offer specialisms in areas including:

  • Psycholinguistics

  • Language development

  • Second language acquisition

  • Language learner psychology (including language learner anxiety, language learner motivation, and group dynamics)

  • Language teacher psychology (including teacher resilience and motivation)

You will join a diverse body of PhD students, working across all areas of the School of English (from English literature to medieval studies). You will also be encouraged to take part in events, such as our postgraduate research seminars and the yearly English Showcase, which brings all PhD students together to share their work.

We also host research in discourse analysis and sociolinguistics, with particular specialisms in health communication and professional communication, as well as language, gender and sexuality.

The University of Nottingham is one of eight universities making up the AHRC-funded Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership (M4C). The partnership provides funding and training to support the professional and personal development of the next generation of arts and humanities doctoral researchers.

You will have access to the University of Nottingham Researcher Academy. This will provide you with a network of researchers and staff to support you during your PhD, as well as training, placement and travel opportunities.
