This year, unlike previous years, we are providing a residential camp in April for the top dozen performers in Round 2. This will provide the basis for selecting the final UK squad and for further training for International Linguistics Olympiad. The University of Warwick have kindly agreed to host the UK teams for the competition. Your camp will be located in their Radcliffe Conference Centre.  Your room is designed for two people, but you will be the only occupant. This event, like the rest of UKLO’s offerings, is entirely free to both the participants and their schools. This is possible because of generous financial support from our sponsoring organisations. Wifi will be available.
