The UoB Linguist Magazine is a free student-run magazine for language learners and culture vultures at the University of Birmingham. Available online and in print, it’ll keep you updated with world affairs, culture, style and all things international. Any student of the University of Birmingham can contribute to the publication and best of all, by joining us you can practice your language skills!

Anyone with an enthusiasm for international culture can write for us in the English-language sections:

Current affairs - Culture - Life and Style - Food and Drink - Travel

And if you know another language, you can brush up your skills by writing for the Foreign-language sections:

Arabic – Chinese – Dutch – French – German – Greek – Italian – Japanese – Polish – Portuguese – Russian – Spanish

… or if you speak a different language, why not set up a new section?
