From our students

I love everything here. I enjoy studying more than one language and culture. I enjoy the books that I get to read. I love the flexibility and the open atmosphere in the department. It is a great place to study, and living in London is a major advantage with an opportunity to meet people from all over the world.
— Jasmin Ahmed Ali Dualeh, Modern Languages BA (German and Hispanic Studies)

School of Languages, Linguistics and Film

The School of Languages, Linguistics and Film is friendly and collaborative, bringing a vibrant range of disciplines together. We teach and research on subjects from practical filmmaking to postmodern literature, and from experimental neurolinguistics to Brazilian Portuguese.

This year, Russian and French students have produced plays in their language, linguistics students have presented their research at conferences and film students have directed, shot and edited many short films.

Our work engages the local community through workshops, research projects and public events. We are visited by poets, novelists and outside experts, and we make the most of our location, forging strong links with London’s cultural institutions.

In the 2017 National Student Survey, French and Hispanic Studies received overall satisfaction ratings of 100 per cent – top in the UK. Satisfaction among linguistics students was at 92 per cent. German was ranked first in London and Hispanic Studies and Russian in the top five by the Complete University Guide 2018.
