Course content

Do you have a flair for language and a passion for communication? The Translation Studies MA could be your step into a translation or interpreting career. Alternatively, if you already work in this field it could equip you with the skills to take it to the next level.

You may choose from two pathways; translation or translation with interpreting. This allows you to focus on building the skills most relevant to your preferred practice.

Both pathways allow you to gain a theoretical understanding and solid practical experience. You'll also be introduced to a variety of computer-assisted tools. These will become invaluable additions to your translator's toolbox.

Languages supported, choose up to three (in addition to English);

  • Arabic
  • French
  • German
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Spanish

Please note, not all languages are available in all modules.
