This site has been made in conjunction with the Why study languages initiative.
About this site
Content for this website has been written by current university students to support UG and PG students studying our subjects and to inform sixth form students who are thinking about their university options. It also includes materials to help students make decisions about careers and enhance their employability.
If you are studying a language at school, please visit our Why study languages site for 11 to 18 year olds.
This site aims to:
- Provide help and advice about studying languages to current undergraduates and to sixth formers, particularly first years and to A-level students
- To give prospective students a flavour of what it’s like studying languages at university
- To offer advice on the year abroad
- To suggest ideas on what students can do after studying languages

The Subject Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies is a publicly funded service, providing UK-wide support and services for higher education. We do this by supporting our stakeholders and helping them to provide the best possible learning experience for students.
Our colleagues in the Economics Network at Bristol University developed www.studyingeconomics.ac.uk and it is a website along these lines that we wish to emulate for languages, linguistics and area studies.
