The Department of Linguistics at SOAS is pleased to announce the availability of several (partial or full) scholarships for students wishing to undertake PhD research.
SOAS Linguistics Department is the oldest linguistics department in the UK, founded in 1932. We have a strong profile in theoretical, descriptive, comparative and applied linguistics (including language pedagogy, sociolinguistics, and translation) and world-leading expertise in the study of the languages of Africa and Asia. We are home to the Hans Rausing Endangered Languages Project and offer a very strong research environment in language documentation of endangered languages.
