Admission guidelines

Building cognitive systems is an interdisciplinary effort. We take this into account by accepting students from a variety of backgrounds, such as computational linguistics, computer science, linguistics, or neighboring disciplines, such as mathematics and psychology. Potential applicants should, however, consider that successfully completing the program requires solid abilities in statistics, other areas of mathematics, and programming. As for the formal admission criteria, applicants need to demonstrate that they already have programming skills, as well as background knowledge in at least one of these areas: Foundations of Mathematics, Foundations of Computer Science, or Foundations of Linguistics.

For the latest information, please always consult the official application guidelines.
