With an overall score of 95.4 out of 100, Linguistics at Queen Mary is positioned ahead of York, Lancaster and Sheffield and just behind Edinburgh and Cambridge.

Head of Linguistics at Queen Mary, Professor David Adger puts this excellent result down to a combination of quality research and teaching.

“Our approach to linguistics also connects the best of the social sciences and the humanities. This means our students are well prepared for a world which needs people who can not only analyse complex data, but also communicate it well,” he adds.

The results reflect a combination of criteria categories, including student satisfaction, research quality, average UCAS entry points and the percentage of graduates undertaking further study or employment six months after graduating.

Queen Mary also rose in The Independent’s overall poll of 115 UK universities, from 43rd to 39th place.
