Why Study TESOL or Linguistics at Bristol University?

A TESOL qualification can open the doors to employment in any part of the world where there is demand for English, while studying Linguistics or Translation at a UK university will give you a great starting point for any career involving cross-cultural communication. Linguistics teaches you how to analyse communicative acts at the most fundamental level and appreciate the differences between cultural norms of communication. Just as importantly, Linguistics will help you develop a rigorous scientific method that can be applied to any field of work. While the study of TESOL or Applied Linguistics often leads to a career in language teaching, the study of Linguistics more generally will help you develop skills valued by multinational companies, including:

  • Communicative skills
  • Analytical skills
  • Scientific method
  • Cross-cultural awareness
  • Translation/Foreign language skills
