The PhD study program 4i3 Mathematical linguistics offered at UFAL now undergoes modernization, which embraces also analyzing selected similar PhD programs abroad. Our observations gained during visiting the universities of Sheffield, Uppsala, Edinburgh, Copenhagen and Genova will be summarized in our talk. In addition, we asked UFAL PhD students for their opinions concerning the current status and possible future improvements of the UFAL PhD program, using an anonymous questionnaire; the findings from this questionnaire will be presented too.
