O que eu aprenderei?

The MSt in Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics is a nine-month taught course offering a range of options for those seeking a graduate qualification in language studies and wishing to specialise in general linguistics (including phonetics but not applied linguistics), in historical and comparative linguistics, or in the linguistics of a specific language.

Students are admitted to the MSt in Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics via one of two strands: Research Preparation strand - The Research Preparation strand is designed for applicants who have studied linguistics as undergraduates to a more advanced level and who thus already have a solid background in all core areas of general linguistics; they will typically have a degree in which linguistics forms at least 50% of the teaching and assessment, or who can otherwise demonstrate that they have studied linguistics to an equivalent level. In order to be admitted to this programme, applicants will already have to have identified, by means of a detailed research proposal, a topic on which they will want to write a master’s thesis; Advanced Study strand - The Advanced Study strand is designed for applicants who have previously studied linguistics at an introductory level, and are keen to familiarise themselves further with the discipline, but who do not have studied linguistics to a more advanced level during their undergraduate degree.

Graduate destinations: Research Preparation strand - It is anticipated that some MSt students in the Research Preparation strand will proceed to doctoral work at Oxford, while others will continue academic study at other institutions. Alternative career destinations may include publishing, secondary and further education, finance, and IT; Advanced Study strand - It is anticipated that career destinations for MSt students in the Advanced Study strand may include publishing, secondary and further education, finance, and IT. The Advanced Study strand is not intended to lead on to doctoral study at Oxford, though it is possible to apply to be considered for readmission as a Probationer Research Student, and it may be a suitable foundation for further postgraduate study at other institutions.

Requisitos de admissão

Para estudantes internacionais

Applicants are normally expected to be predicted or have achieved a first-class or strong upper second-class undergraduate degree with honours (or equivalent international qualifications), as a minimum, in a relevant subject, for example in modern languages, classics, computer science, philosophy or mathematics. For applicants with a degree from the USA, the minimum GPA sought is 3.5 out of 4.0. However, entrance is very competitive and most successful applicants have a first-class degree or the equivalent. Applicants need to have an IELTS score of 7.5 with a minimum of 7.0 per component; TOEFL iBT score of 110 with a minimum component score of 22 in listening, 24 in reading, 24 in writing and 25 in speaking.

Os requisitos para o IELTS podem variar de acordo com o curso que você escolher.
