Master Programme in Language Technology
This is the planned standard layout of the programme. The degree requirements give the students considerable freedom to choose other courses. Some of this information is open to revision! Course links to previous instances of the courses on the MPLT 2016-2018 course page. Some courses (syllabi and content) will be revised. For students (without comparable previous credits) who want to complete the programme according to the layout, courses marked ! are compulsory, and you furthermore need to take 22.5 credits of courses marked + during the first two semesters.

Concerning elective courses
When deciding on which courses to take you should consider the two kinds of regulation that provide the formal constraints, (1) course entry requirements (stated in the syllabi and above) and (2) degree requirements. The master degree must include 120 credits of courses as follows (read more at UU's page about degrees):
We invite and recommend 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 belonging to other departments 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 computer science courses 1DL210, 1DL251, 1DL340 it is important that you make sure you do that from within the programme.
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!).
