Course summary

Language has power. It can shape a mind, influence an idea, or even start a movement. Linguistics is the science of how language works. And language influences all the big questions in everyday life, from culture and gender, to technology, discrimination, health, law, social justice, ecology, and conservation. BA (Hons) English Language and Linguistics is a practical course designed to develop you into a highly skilled communicator. If you wish to specialise in English language teaching you can also gain the prestigious Cambridge Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA), a professional qualification that will open doors to employment worldwide. Career-boosting elements are fully embedded throughout the course with a focus on applying your knowledge and theory with hands-on, practical sessions. You will explore how language is used in the real world and how it can tackle the big problems including racism, gender equality, and climate change. You will be supported with a personalised learning environment, a wide range of optional modules, and a range of innovative assessment types, including blogs and videos, professional expert reports, and teaching material. You can even gain valuable full-time work experience with a sandwich course option, or spend time studying - or even teaching - abroad.

A lower offer may be made based on a range of factors, including your background (such as where you live and the school or college you attended), your experiences and individual circumstances (you may have been in care, for example). This is called a contextual offer and we get data from UCAS to make these decisions. NTU offers a student experience like no other, and this approach helps us to find students who have the potential to succeed here, but may have faced barriers that can make it more difficult to access university.
