Months of entry
The MA in Translation has a strong focus on practice, in how you are both taught and assessed. You will learn through a mix of small tutorials specific to your language specialism and larger integrated lectures. Whichever of our seven languages you focus on you will become part of our wider postgraduate translation community.
There are three pathways to choose from. The Specialist Translation pathway is designed to prepare you for a career in the translation industry. The Research pathway takes a more academic approach and would suit anyone looking to pursue a research career. If you specialise in one of our European languages you might consider the Literary pathway which will focus your attention on the translation of prose, poetry and dramatic texts with encouragement to express your creativity. The Modern Languages Department also operates the Centre for Translating Cultures, an active community of staff and postgraduate students that we hope you will become part of.
Teaching is split between methodology and practice, to give you a broad choice of potential careers. As well as top academic staff you will be taught by practising translators who have an inside track on the industry.
