The Cambridge University Linguistic Society (CU LingSoc) brings together members of the University who are interested in the field of linguistics, and language in general.

We organise valuable academic and social events where members can meet each other, discuss ideas, and network with professionals in the discipline. Our goal is to create an inclusive community that enriches the student experience by providing opportunities for language enthusiasts to explore their interests in a friendly and informal manner. 

The society's website, including details of how to become a member, can be found here.

This year's Programme can be found on and the Society have a FaceBook page here:
