BAAL student membership rate

BAAL continues to offer student memberships for the reduced rate of £20 per year. The membership allows students to receive a discount on the annual conference registration fees. Postgraduate members may also be supported to give a paper at the annual conference with a number of Student and Early Career Researcher Scholarships.

Postgraduate Facebook group

The postgraduate Facebook group has  over a thousand members. It provides a platform for networking for PG students involved in any sort of Applied Linguistics related research, from all over the UK and beyond. Members share posts on conferences, research, seminars and job opportunities. You can join the group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/40190066151/

BAAL Annual Conference student activities

The Richard Pemberton prize is awarded annually for the best postgraduate student paper and there is also a prize for the best poster. The conference features a postgraduate research forum and a ‘Research Speed Dating’ event for PGs and early career researchers, both organised by BAAL’s elected Postgraduate Development & Liaison Coordinator.
