The Masters in Language Technology (MLT) at the University of
Gothenburg is an international masters programme which can lead to
either a one-year or a two-year degree.  Deadline for applications in
the current round for Swedish and EU students is 15th April, 2011.
For further information see

Students are taught by researchers who are engaged in developing the
latest technologies within the University of Gothenburg's priority
research area in language technology at our Centre for Language
Technology (CLT,, a collaboration between four
departments at the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of
Technology (Department of Philosophy, Linguistics and Theory of
Science, Department of Swedish, Department of Computer Science and
Engineering and Department of Applied Information Technology).  We
encourage students to work on their masters projects in one of CLT's
three labs: dialogue technology lab, grammar technology lab, and text
technology lab.

Language technology research and teaching in Gothenburg is
characterized by a focus on the contribution of theoretical and
rule-based approaches appropriately combined with statistical
techniques.  Students therefore receive instruction in linguistic
theory as applied to language technology as well as current approaches
to language technology.  The programme draws students from a wide
variety of backgrounds including linguistics, computer science,
cognitive science and philosophy.  The programme is heavily oriented
towards practical programming techniques (currently using the
programming language Python) but we do not require that students
entering the programme necessarily have a background in programming.
They should, however, be prepared to learn programming techniques in
an intensive introduction provided at the beginning of the programme.
