Outreach

The School of Languages, Linguistics and Film is proud to offer an exciting range of free Outreach activities for secondary schools and colleges.

Under the expert leadership of Dr Eli Vilar (Schools Liaison Lead), a dynamic team has been assembled, including SLLF’s Admissions, Recruitment and Marketing team and Dr Richard Mason - who has successfully been awarded funding to develop Outreach for Modern Languages.

Our departments have been incredibly active throughout the year and have seamlessly moved all Outreach activities online. With the support of our Leads in Comparative Literature, Film Studies and Linguistics, we have organised FREE taster events for all subjects and will be offering many more from February 2021.
