The Centre for Applied Linguistics is one of a number of UK university departments involved in a Capacity Building Project with the Syrian Ministry of Higher Education and, through it, the four Syrian state universities. The project was established in 2002 through the British Council and covers a number of academic disciplines, the biggest of which is English Language Teacher Education. Three UK HE institutions are involved in the ELTE aspects of the project: the universities of Essex and Warwick and the College of St Mark and St John.
A number of Syrian scholars have completed MAs with us and, in some cases, PhDs.
