To take into account

Placements All students of English Language have the opportunity to pursue a work placement as part of their degree, by taking the 'English Language in the Workplace' module. We also actively encourage students to become involved in such activities as the European ERASMUS+ university exchange / placement scheme and the US Exchange Programme. Student involvement in Open Days as guides and subject ambassadors is also actively sought; the single best advertisement we can give for our degree comes when the students, and not the tutors, describe what the course has given them. #DMUglobal This is our innovative international experience programme which aims to enrich your studies and expand your cultural horizons – helping you to become a global graduate, equipped to meet the needs of employers across the world. Through #DMUglobal, we offer a wide range of opportunities including on-campus and UK activities, overseas study, internships, faculty-led field trips and volunteering, as well as Erasmus+ and international exchanges. In recent years, students of English Language have engaged in #DMUglobal activity in New York, Tokyo, India, the Czech Republic, Berlin, Canada, and Thailand, and we are continually looking for new destinations to allow us to explore the connections between what we do in the classroom and what happens in the world beyond. Graduate careers Our graduates have high-level linguistic, reasoning and analytical skills, making them very employable. We develop our students’ information analysis and presentation skills to produce extremely articulate, adaptable, professional communicators who can operate with ease in any setting and with any group of people.

Overview

You will be taught by staff with a wide range of knowledge and experience in English Language and linguistics (theoretical, applied, and historical), modern foreign languages, English literature, English as a foreign language, history, international relations and American studies. Members of the team are engaged in a wide range of research projects which feed directly into our teaching. The staff who teach you also demonstrate a deep commitment to high-quality teaching and learning, as evidenced by the holding of awards from the Higher Education Authority and Vice-Chancellor's Distinguished Teaching Award.

In the final year you have the opportunity to do a work placement module.

Contact hours

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, group work and self-directed study. Assessment is through coursework (e.g. presentations, essays and reports). Your precise timetable will depend on the optional modules you choose to take, however, in your first year you will normally attend around 10 hours of timetabled taught sessions (lectures and tutorials) each week, and we expect you to undertake at least 25 further hours of independent study to complete project work and research.
