Many skills for future professions

Course: BA (Hons) English Language and Linguistics

10 April 2018

I love studying English Language and Linguistics because it helps with so many skills that I need for the professions I want to go into. For instance, close reading, analysing, teamwork and many more skills.

Being at ARU gave me so much more confidence - I had to meet and interact with new people, and it helped me grow so much as a person.

I remember coming to an Open Day and attending a taster session that made me so excited for lectures and seminars - it just seemed so interesting, the way you were taught, compared to college. As well as this, the University was small and seemed friendly, which really made me sure that I wanted to come here.

English Language and Linguistics is exciting as language is in a constant state of change and you can never get bored. Studying a topic such as Language and Gender is fascinating as it is relevant to the course but particularly relevant to society today.
