More about Gavin

"The study of language has always been of interest to me and I was impressed by the range of topics covered in NTU's linguistics department. I came to an open event before applying, it was important as it gave me a feel for Clifton campus where my course is based.

"The course has a number of strengths including the range of subjects covered and the range of resources available. What I value the most though is the professionalism and expertise of the lecturers. NTU is home to a number of the world's leading experts and I've had the opportunity to study alongside them. In my second year I won a scholarship with NTU which allowed me to gain invaluable research experience by letting me participate in some of the cutting edge research undertaken by NTU staff.

"I have developed skills in time management, efficient reading and analysis and have learnt and practiced research methods. I am aiming to use the experience I have gained on this course in my future career by moving into an academic post within linguistics and conducting my own research.

"I would highly recommend this course. The NTU linguistics department are experts in their respective fields and offer a linguistics course which is more in-depth, diverse and interesting than I have seen anywhere else."
