ACTL (Advanced Core Tranining in Linguistics) is a graduate school in theoretical linguistics. We organise and coordinate a generic training program for PhD students in Linguistics.
ACTL was founded in 2004 with a two-year start-up grant from the AHRC, but is now jointly funded by the Univeristy of Cambridge, the University of Kent, the Univeristy of Oxford, Queen Mary, Univeristy of London, SOAS, and UCL. The financial support of these institutions is hereby gratefully acknowledged.
The program is split into two halves.
- The Autumn School in Term 1 offers three introductury courses. Each course consists of five 1.5-hour lectures complemented by five one-hour tutorials.
- The Summer School takes place in June. It is open not only to first year Ph.D. students but to all Ph.D. students, Masters students and comparable, and finalists in linguistics BA programs.
