Why Linguistics at Queen Mary?

As a Russell Group university with a difference, we believe that language is central to all aspects of life. The diversity and breadth of our programmes gives you the flexibility to study topics that really excite you, as well as the ability to forge a career in a huge range of sectors.

Throughout your degree studies, you might find yourself analysing a little-known language such as Fijian, or collecting data on the evolution of London English. Meanwhile, our London location provides a living laboratory: because of its diversity, English changes at pace here.
