General Comments

Linguistics is interdisciplinary so specific A–Level subjects are not required. We welcome applicants with an outstanding academic profile, whether science-oriented or arts-centred. However, some formal study of language, either through learning languages or through English Language A–Level, does serve as a good preparation.

The main requirement for studying Linguistics is a lively curiosity about the nature of language.
