Program Description: This postgraduate programme represents a one year full-time (or part-time) advanced study of the current state of scholarship in language study and linguistics, with a particular emphasis on English language teaching and pedagogical applications. It provides an introduction to the interdisciplinary and sub-disciplinary dimensions of linguistics, and offers students the ability to develop a critical facility in applying theoretical models and frameworks in language study. It draws on students' teaching experience and encourages reflection and development in pedagogy. It differs from its sister MA in Applied Linguistics only in the experience brought by the student to the programme, and in the dissertation topic required.

Students take 180 credits worth of modules, including the dissertation element (60c). Students are required to take the module Approaches to Language and Linguistics (15c) and the module Research Methods in Applied Linguistics (15c). Students can choose an additional 90 credits from a range of taught elective modules.

The degree equips students with a very high level of knowledge and skills in applied linguistics, critical and adaptable thinking. It is an excellent preparation for doctoral research study.
Available Financial Aid: International students (non-Chinese passport holders) may apply for one of 15 partial scholarships. These are worth 30,000 CNY (33% of the tuition fee).

Applicants should possess at least a 2:1 bachelor's degree or equivalent.
