You may work as a paid language assistant in a foreign school or do an internship abroad, both of which provide valuable opportunities to develop career experience while improving language competence.
Alternatively your year may be spent studying at a foreign university. You will also be encouraged to spend as much of your time as possible during the vacations in the countries whose languages you are studying. Students who consider that they may be affected are asked to contact their department for advice. Your typical week will include a tutorial on linguistics or literature, a linguistics class, language classes on different skills relating to the language or languages you study, and five or six lectures.
Tutorials are usually up to four students and a tutor. Seminar and language class sizes may vary depending on the options you choose or the language you are studying, but there would usually be no more than around 20 students and classes would often be much smaller. Most tutorials, classes, and lectures are delivered by staff who are tutors in their subject. Many are world-leading experts with years of experience in teaching and research.
Some teaching may also be delivered by postgraduate students who are usually studying at doctorate level. The content and format of this course may change in some circumstances.

No experience of studying Linguistics is required, though knowledge of the relevant modern language may be expected, as detailed below.

Separate registration for each test is required and it is the responsibility of the candidate to ensure that they are registered for these tests. We strongly recommend making the arrangements in plenty of time before the deadline. Language tutors look for a good command of any language you have already studied and want to continue studying at Oxford, and a strong interest in literature and culture.
Linguistics is a subject that most students start from scratch at University. Therefore admission tutors look for potential, in the form of an interest in exploring the nature of human language, together with an aptitude for describing and analysing it. Furthermore, tutors look for a willingness to learn the formal tools required for rigorous and detailed investigation and leading to a deep understanding of the use, history and structure of the language you are studying.
The training in rigorous analysis provided by Linguistics, coupled with highly developed practical competence in a language, gives graduates an excellent basis for a wide range of careers in language-related employment and other areas. Recent Modern Languages and Linguistics graduates include a management consultant, a brand marketing manager, a market researcher for a company in the chemical industry, and a psychology lecturer.
Investigating languages demands diligence, focus and determination; the course also developed many critical skills that are essential for interesting careers — analytical reading, discussion, listening skills, presentation skills, and a keen writing style.
