Welcome to the UK Linguistics Olympiad

(UKLO, pronounced /juklou/)

UKLO is a competition, like the Mathematical Olympiad, for students who are still at school (or equivalent college) – any age, any ability level – in which they have to solve linguistic data problems. Thanks to our generous academic supporters, it’s completely free to both competitors and schools. The UK Olympiad also enters a team in the International Linguistics Olympiad.
