      Academic Experience

      Language and Linguistics at UUJ is awesome! We're in for 9 hours a week, usually 1/2 days every week! That's three modules, made up of two hours of lectures and a one hour seminar. There's roughly 15-20 students in each lecture and we cover a large amount of learning in the two hours, then the students are usually split into two groups of 10 roughly, and we spend the hour seminar going over the material covered in the lecture. Some of our seminars are led by a PHD student rather than the lecturer, it makes things more interesting and it's often easier asking a PHD student something you don't know :) We cover everything from Semantics & Pragmatics, to Syntax, to Social Conversations to Phonetics! It's extremely interesting (although often quite challenging!) and we have some world known lecturers teaching us. The modules are usually 40/60%, coursework/examination or 100% examination. Most of the coursework we submit through Blackboard, there we receive online marks and feedback from the tutors, it is a pretty easy system to use, and you do receive training how to use it. We do have some course-specific facilities including our phonetics lab, which is an excellent resource!

      There is a Student Unions however due to the fact that were it is located it is probably not somewhere you would go to on a night out. There is a good sports facility. Plenty of cafes and shops in the university and plenty of place to chill out.

      The upside

      Providing the opportunity to engage in as many or as little aspects of university life as you wish. My university (UUJ) also provides great careers, placement and studies support to a level much higher than I expected.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
