Education at the National Research Schools / LOT

There are fifteen national research schools in the field of the Humanities. PhD candidates select a research school in consultation with their supervisors.

Most Linguistics PhD candidates join LOT, the Netherlands Graduate School of Linguistics. LOT offers academic courses twice a year during winter schools (in January) and summer schools (in June), which last two weeks each. The locations of these schools alternate between the participating universities: Groningen, Nijmegen, Tilburg, Utrecht, Leiden, Leuven, Amsterdam VU and Amsterdam UvA.
