Welcome to Study Association T.W.I.S.T.!

T.W.I.S.T. is the study association for linguistics in Leiden. For over twenty years, we’ve been organising activities for our members that allow them to add more depth to their study and meet fellow students along the way. Some of our annual events are the study trip abroad, the T.W.I.S.T. Student Conference, and the Talengala. We also organise lectures, movie nights, game nights, borrels, and much more! Of course, we don’t do all of this by ourselves, but we are assisted by the fantastic members of our committies.

A T.W.I.S.T. membership will allow you to get to know your fellow students, as well as others who are interested in language. You will receive our magazine (the TWISTER) four times a year and will get to participate in the wide variety of activities our board and committees have to offer; maybe you’ll even join one yourself! You will also get to vote in the general assemblies. Most of all, you will make friends and have a lot of fun at T.W.I.S.T.!

    Saying that you study linguistics can invoke all kinds of wh-words. Why would you study that? What is it good for? Whill you ever be able to get a job with that? To give your concerned family the answer to all these questions and more, the AcCie is organising a Family Day on Friday February 26th, from 11.00 to 13.30! Your family members will learn all about our wonderful study programme, the four tracks, and the courses that we take. Since this is an online session, feel free to bring as much family as you like and have them tune in from anywhere! You can sign up here, and make sure to do so before February 22nd.

    Wanneer je zegt dat je taalwetenschap studeert, roept dat vaak allerlei vragen op. Waarom zou je dat studeren? Wat heeft dat voor nut? Ga je daar ooit een baan mee vinden? Om je bezorgde familie het antwoord te geven op al deze vragen en meer organiseert de AcCie een Familiedag op vrijdag 26 februari van 11.00 tot 13.30! Op deze dag komen je familieleden van alles te weten over onze opleiding, de vier tracks en de vakken die we volgen. Omdat het een online evenement, is kun je zoveel familie meenemen als je wil, en hoeven ze niet helemaal naar Leiden te komen! Je kunt je hier aanmelden tot 22 februari.
