How to Ling and Lang for a week

Hiya, My name is Emma and I am currently a second year student studying English Language and Linguistics. One thing I love about studying Linguistics is the range of topics you can study. The department at York is so amazing and the staff are so supportive but the best thing above everything else within the department are the opportunities that are offered outside of academia such as student voice roles. I wrote a blog to give you an insight into what life is like as an undergraduate studying English Language and Linguistics at York. Hopefully it will inspire you to study at York and give you some helpful tips for when you are in my position very soon.

My placement year in a pandemic

I’m Taylor and I am a final year English Language and Linguistics (with placement year) student and I want to share some of the opportunities that are offered as part of your programme of study at the University of York, and in the Department of Language and Linguistic Science. Higher education is not only about discovering more about the subject you love, it is also a great opportunity to immerse yourself in everything that the city and the University has to offer and one of those things is the Placement Year Programme. In my blog, I will be talking about my placement year experience, some of my placement highlights and how this experience has impacted my studies. I hope you are looking forward to coming to York and starting your course. You have so much to look forward to- just remember to grab every opportunity that comes by you!
