The Vice Chancellor has recently spoken on the importance to the University of Cambridge of the European ideal and its practical consequences for research, student and staff mobility. The Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages would like to remind all of our students of the importance of casting a vote in the forthcoming referendum, the outcome of which is so important to our future.
The Faculty is to launch a major new research project to study the benefits of multilingualism to individuals and society, and transform attitudes to languages in the UK, as part of the AHRC’s Open World Research Initiative.
