Our Graduate Diploma in Applied Linguistics with English for Academic Purposes provides you with the opportunity to combine English language and academic skills with key areas of applied linguistics. Our applied linguistics modules examine topics related to second language acquisition and learning, and the principles of teaching English as a foreign language. They also deal with the relationship between learning a first and a second language, language aptitude, language teaching methods, techniques, materials and testing. Successful completion of the Graduate Diploma, at the required level, will normally qualify you for entry to an appropriate Masters-level course in our Department of Language and Linguistics.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 5.5

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
