Applied Linguistics

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

In contrast with the field of theoretical linguistics, applied linguistics aims to address real-world language usage problems. It is concerned with applying the critical study of language to assess literacies and situations that pertain to discourse analysis.

Distance education or distance learning is a way of delivering education and instruction, often on an individual basis, to students who are not physically present on campus.
