Centre for Research and Enterprise in Language

Postgraduate Research

Why study with us?

We run two MA programmes and form a vibrant research community. We supervise PhD topics on linguistics, language acquisition, processing and teaching as well as early modern English literature, Eighteenth-century literature and creative writing. CREL offers you access to a wide multidisciplinary research team, which ensures you can integrate the different angles involved in a topic with ease. CREL has a Neurolinguistics laboratory with eye-tracking and EEG technology facilities to study cognitive and processing aspects of language.

As a postgraduate student you would be able to participate in regular research events, reading groups and training and workshops opportunities where you would expand your continuous exposure to experts from across the globe and discuss fundamental research issues.
