Saarland University is the coordinating institution for the international Master's program 'Language and Communication Technologies'. The program offers students from around the world high-class academic training coupled with the opportunity to improve their foreign language skills and hone their intercultural competence by selecting subject-related and geographical areas of preference.


Key facts

Students at Saarland University's Language and Communication Technologies study at two of the participating universities within the consortium, which, in addition to Saarland University, includes universities in the Czech Republic, France, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands and Spain. Students can combine modules from the fields of language technology, computational linguistics, theoretical linguistics and computer science in a way that reflects their own personal academic interests. Depending on the focus of the modules and courses taken, graduates from the program will be awarded either an M.Sc. or an MA degree from each of the two universities at which they studied.

Each student receives support and guidance from two academic supervisors - one from each of the student's two chosen universities. Students work with their supervisors to develop an individual study plan, which then has to be approved by the study committee that represents the consortium. The Master's thesis project is jointly supervised and can be carried out at either or both of the chosen institutions. The Master's thesis is defended in front of a jury whose members are drawn from the two chosen universities. A number of scholarships and other funding sources are available to financially support students on the Master's program.
