Which qualifications do I need for admission?

You will need a three-years Bachelor's degree or an equivalent level of university qualification. More details are given on the applications page for entering the MSc Program.

If you have obtained particularly good grades in a Bachelor's degree but have not studied logic subjects, you may also be considered for the course.

Do I need to learn Italian or German to study Computational Logic?

No, this is not necessary. The courses are taught in English.

Do I need a good knowledge of English?

Yes you do because all lectures, discussions and study materials are in English. If English is not your native language, you will need a certificate demonstrating your proficiency in English.

Are there any tuition fees?

The centralised nominal tuition/enrolment fees for the European Master in Computational Logic are 1,000.00 € for European citizens and 3,000 € for non-European citizens, to be paid after the beginning of the courses. The EMCL consortium provides a large number of scholarships and tuition/enrolment fees waivers; check the application page.

Do you provide any scholarships?

Yes, of many different kinds. Check the application page. Prospective students should pay attention to the deadlines and apply on time.

How long does the program last?

Two years (four semesters), including the semester for the MSc thesis. The first year is composed of "foundation" modules, which are held at Technische Universität Dresden (first term) and Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (second term), plus 20 credits from "advanced" modules. The second year is composed of 18 credits of "advanced" modules, a 12 credits project and the master thesis. This second year may be completed in any of the partner universities (including the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano).

Where can I get an application form?

Application forms can be downloaded on the page about how to apply. If you have difficulties obtaining the application form electronically, please send us your full name and postal address and we will send you the materials by mail.

Do I need a visa?
