Language, Communication and Translation Studies

In the School of Literature and Languages, we're fascinated with the way words and languages work, how they travel across national boundaries and between cultures, and the relationship they have with our thoughts.

Our languages and linguistics programmes are ranked top five by The Guardian University Guide 2018.
