Overview

The Linguistics and Intensive Language (Arabic) programme from SOAS University of London is run on a modular basis to suit students with little or no training in linguistics who wish to acquire a more profound knowledge of the discipline or take the degree as a conversion course before proceeding to a research degree. It is also for those looking to gain a working knowledge of an Asian, Middle Eastern or African language.

At the end of the programme students will be able to embark on professional careers in language-related fields with emphasis on the region in which the language chosen for the programme is spoken. They will also be able to undertake further study, such as for a research degree in linguistics.
