We offer projects to the MSc Language Sciences and the MRes Speech, Language, and Cognition. Our available project are distributed in a booklet via the module organiser Yi Xu at the end of October each year and we generally take on 2-3 MSc/Mres students each year for a summer project. We normally take the project advertised in the aforementioned booklet as a starting point to design the research project you would be working on.
