In addition, you will have the opportunity to engage in new developments in research collaboration both within the School, such as Digital Humanities, and with colleagues across the University in fields such as Translation Studies, Linguistics and Phonetics, Computing and Education. These links will be fostered by the recently established major Faculty strategic initiative LanguageLeeds.

You will contribute to a range of teaching and learning across programmes and at all levels, working to ensure the highest quality student experience.
