Q: What are the entry requirements?
A: There are none as such. However, in order to fully benefit from the course, participants with no background in linguistics should familiarize themselves with an introductory text such as Aitchison's "Linguistics", Fromkin, Rodman and Hyams' "An Introduction to Language", or Parker and Riley's "Linguistics for Non-Linguists".

image Q: What kind of people come to the school?
A: Anyone with an interest in forensic linguistics! Among the participants in previous years were civil servants, police officers, translators, a crime fiction author as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students of linguistics and other disciplines. They came from all corners of the world.
