      Academic Experience

      My language and linguistics course is awesome! We're in for nine hours a week, usually one or two days every week! We cover everything from semantics, pragmatics and syntax, to social conversations and phonetics! It's extremely interesting (although often quite challenging!). We have some course-specific facilities including our phonetics lab, which is an excellent resource!

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.
