Course content

This course is designed to give you the skills you need to work from two languages into English, or one language into and out of English at a professional level. You must be a native speaker or have a near native competence in Chinese, French, German, Spanish or English or hold a degree in Chinese, French, German or Spanish.

We're members of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI), a professional body recognised throughout the world. Our membership of the ITI allows us to help you keep abreast of the full range of exciting developments and opportunities in the languages services industry. We’re also members of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL).

Our postgraduate degree in Translation Studies with TESOL is of the highest value. Not only will it equip you with professional level translation skills in international dialogues, it also gives you an entry-level teaching qualification with which you can embark on a career in English Language Teaching.

Throughout the course there’s a strong focus on practical translation and specific situations in which people communicate with one another across different cultures. We give you considerable flexibility in choosing which areas of translation you wish to specialise in as you build up a portfolio of translations with your tutor. You can also choose to undertake an extended translation as part of your dissertation project.

The MSc Translation Studies with TESOL course combines training in two key areas for linguists. Gaining expertise in both will open the door to a wide range of possible career routes, and will stand you in good stead when embarking on your chosen career path.
