Languages, communication, translation and interpreting

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.

We are ranked in the top three for modern languages and linguistics in the Guardian University Guide 2019 and in the top 10 for creative writing in the Complete University Guide 2019. We also achieved 100 per cent overall satisfaction for French studies in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2018.
