About this program

Computer Science - Language Technologies and Computational Linguistics

The aim of the study programme “Computer Science – Language Technologies and Computational Linguistics” is to get the graduates ready for research in the area of natural language processing and development of applications dealing with both written and spoken language. Examples of such applications are systems of information retrieval, information extraction and summarization, machine translation, text analytics, grammar checking, automatic speech recognition, spoken dialogue systems, and speech synthesis. The emphasis is put on deep understanding of formal mathematical and algorithmic foundations and their practical applicability in natural language processing tasks. Students of the programme have the possibility to focus either on theoretical aspects of formal description of natural languages or on the technology-oriented side (state-of-the-art methods in statistics, machine learning and deep learning) for language data processing.

Admission requirements

Description of verification and evaluation criteria

The goal of the admissions review process is to select from the pool of applicants those individuals who have shown the capability and diligence expected of Charles University students. To apply for our Computer Science, Mathematics or Physics Master's programmes given in English you must

  • hold or be working towards a Bachelor’s or Master’s diploma and provide a certified copy thereof;
  • have sufficient academic background in the relevant fields;
  • have sufficient command of the English language; this can be demonstrated by providing your results in one of the standardized English tests that we recognize.

Conditions for admission

Admission to Bachelor's studies is conditioned by completed secondary education confirmed by a school-leaving certificate. Admission to Post-Bachelor studies (Master's programme) is likewise conditioned by completed education in any type of study programme.
