Modern Languages and Linguistics at Southampton

The University’s department of Modern Languages and Linguistics is consistently rated within the top 5 in the UK. We offer teaching in a range of languages and we are a thriving research community which is home to several internationally renowned research centres: the Centre for Language Learning, Education and Acquisition Research (CLLEAR), the Centre for Global Englishes (CGE) and the Centre for Transnational Studies (TNS). We have a strong linguistics section and a large number of postgraduate students, mostly from outside the UK. Many of these students focus on technology-related research.

The department includes a dynamic academic innovation unit which directs and coordinates a range of enterprise activities from our strong online learning portfolio, to a successful range of language-related events and commercial partnerships.

The Faculty of Humanities is also home to the Academic Centre for International Students (ACIS), a hub for language and cultural support for international students.
