Postgraduate Admissions

The PhD in Computation, Cognition and Language was a trajectory-changing experience for me. In an environment with a supportive and competent supervisor and advisor, helpful and loving labmates and fellow PhD students, coupled with stimulating invited and informal talks, I was able to experience first hand the many elements - expected and unexpected - that go into producing top-tier research. The friends, knowledge and
connections I gained would remain a lasting gift.

The level of attention and interaction I received from my supervisor was truly unique and personally enriching, and the training and supervision I received from the Language Technology Lab have been crucial to my
scientific career development. Apart from the top research resources, the Faculty offers a friendly atmosphere that encourages discussion with fellow students and senior researchers across disciplines and diving deep into an amazing range of topics.

The PhD in Computation, Cognition and Language was an excellent experience. Naturally, the standards are high (supervision, expected output, fellow students, etc.)  So prepare to put in the work! However, the supportive and intellectually stimulating environment helped me prepare for the Research Scientist position at a leading global
technology company, a challenging but rewarding career. I would definitely recommend the course to aspiring students.
