This is the planned standard layout of the programme. The degree requirements (see below) give the students considerable freedom to choose other courses. Some of this information is open to revision! Some courses (syllabi and content) will be revised. Find specific course information in the Student Portal by using the search facility.

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 (possibly also from other universities and countries) 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 (at UU and other Swedish universities) through universityadmissions.se or antagning.se. 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. Freestanding application to other courses is equivalent.
Admission to the language technology courses given by the Dept of Linguistics and Philology is done directly when the courses start for MPLT students. (See the page Examination and continued studies, to the left.)
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 be registered to 30 credits of courses belonging to the programme and an additional 15 credits of freestanding courses. You who are fee-paying students typically pay for 30 credits each semester, but that is checked at the time of registration, when you actually enroll in the courses. When it comes to application and admission you can count on the 45 credit limit.
You can find syllabi and other information about courses in the Student Portal (search!). Syllabi can also be found from the course code in this style:
