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

T.W.I.S.T. is a study association for linguistics in Leiden. Our goal is to connect all linguists at Leiden University by organising activities year-round. Some of our annual events are the study trip abroad, the student conference, and the gala. We also organise lectures, movie nights, game nights, borrels, and much more.

A T.W.I.S.T. membership will allow you to personally get to know your fellow students, as well as others who are interested in language. You will receive our student journal (the TWISTER) four times a year and will get to participate in the wide variety of activities our board and committees have to offer this year. You will get to vote on the general meetings and join our committees if you want to play a more active role in the association. Most of all, you will make friends and have a lot of fun at T.W.I.S.T.
