Welcome to Outreach in Modern Languages and Linguistics at the University of Southampton. 

Ranked 4th in the Guardian League Table in 2017 for teaching and student experience, Modern Languages and Linguistics at Southampton is offering primary and secondary school outreach on-campus and off-campus activities in order to promote our enthusiasm for our area and to inspire young people to take up and to continue studying Modern Languages of all Key Stages in primary and secondary.

A key focus of the department's outreach agenda is the delivery of Able Linguist Days for year 8 and 12 students. Aside from our year 12 day in January 2017, we will also be running these events in June 2017. Follow us on Twitter for further updates. These events will draw on the research excellence of the department's world-leading academics and provide an insight into studying languages at university level.


6th Form Conference

In January 2018, the University of Southampton will be hosting its first Modern Languages and Linguistics conference exclusively for 6th form students.
