Guidance for prospective MPhil/PhD students

Birkbeck's Department of Languages, Cultures and Applied Linguistics brings together a cosmopolitan, enthusiastic community of scholars, researchers and students. We share interests in French-, German-, Italian- Japanese-, Portuguese- and Spanish-speaking cultures and histories, from the Renaissance to the present day. 

We offer MPhil/PhD degrees in Applied Linguistics and Education. As well as conventional MPhil/PhD degrees, we offer Integrated PhD degrees, which include taught modules for doctoral researchers who didn't study linguistics at Master's level.
