What our students say

Catherine - Linguistics BA student
"I really love the people in my department. Chandler House is a very supportive environment and by claiming it to be a “small Linguistics family” I’m not being melodramatic. All staff are extremely helpful and patient (and after talking to my friends from other universities or even other departments I have realised that this should not be taken for granted!).

I want to emphasise that the teaching staff in the whole department, the way they take care of their fields of study makes it very easy to understand why UCL Linguistics is world-famous."

- Catherine, Linguistics BA (2020)
