The Master’s Programme in Speech and Language Processing is crafted for post-graduate students aiming to build on their bachelor's degree in linguistics or a related field.

You can choose to specialise in either Human Language Processing or Machine Language Processing. In this programme, you will explore various study subjects that enhance your understanding of language mechanisms. The curriculum is designed to provide a comprehensive grasp of how language is processed, both by humans and machines. This includes studying the intricacies of speech recognition, natural language understanding, and the development of language technologies. By focusing on Human Language Processing, you will gain insights into the cognitive and neurological aspects of how people comprehend and produce language.
