The University Council of Modern Languages (UCML) represents the interests of staff working in modern languages, linguistics, cultural and area studies in UK higher education.

UCMLS is the Scottish branch of UCML. Our overall aim is to help change public attitudes to language learning in Scotland.

In addition to our own initiatives, such as the ever popular language ambassador scheme, we have supported SCILT on a range of projects. Dates and venues for all events are communicated via SCILT’s weekly e-bulletin and social media. On 31 March 2017 UCMLS published its Action Plan in support of the Scottish Government’s 1+2 policy.
