THIS INSTANCE OF THE PROGRAMME ENDED IN JUNE 2018.
This is the standard layout of the programme. (Individual choices can also be made.) Course links to previous instances of the courses on the 2015-2017 course page. You can take at most 30 credits within MPLT each of the four semesters. You can also take courses by freestanding (outside of a programme) application/admission. In this way you can be admitted to and registered on at most 45 cr. each semester. (Some students are liable to pay fees for application and tuition, read more here.)

Spring 2018 FOURTH SEMESTER
Concerning elective courses
When deciding on which courses to take you should consider the degree requirements. The master degree must include 120 credits of courses as follows (read more at UU's page about degrees):
We invite our students to take more than the minimal amount of ALT courses. However, courses from other departments and universities can be included in the degree, and can, of course, represent valuable specialisation.
Apply for courses not marked ALT through antagning.se. (You will have to manage with the Swedish only website.) Deadlines: mid October (spring courses) and mid April (autumn courses). When you apply for the computer science courses 1DL210, 1DL251, 1DL340 it is important that you make sure you do that from within the programme. Remember that freestanding courses and courses from other departments and universities can be included in a UU Language Technology Master degree.
Admission to the language technology courses (given by the Dept of Linguistics and Philology) is done directly and informally for the LT master students.
You can apply for more courses than you'll need/intend to take, and that can give you some useful freedom to choose once schedules etc. are known.
You can find syllabi and other information about courses in the Student Portal (search!).
