Course content

This unique and innovative course is the first of its kind in the UK. You’ll get in-depth, systematic research training in translation and interpreting, and customised preparation for a PhD.

We’re one of the UK’s top translation research centres, with more than three decades of experience in postgraduate education and research training. We focus on exciting and newly developing areas of the discipline, such as translation and interpreting technologies, translation process research, translation as intercultural mediation, corpus-based translation, audiovisual translation and multimodality studies.

The Centre for Translation Studies (CTS) is currently developing an ambitious new research programme which will place you at the very heart of future developments. This programme will inform our teaching and provide a strong focus on the responsible integration of human and machine translation and interpreting.

By studying MRes Translation and Interpreting Studies at Surrey, you’ll join our internationally recognised Centre for Translation Studies. We combine leading research expertise with professional relevance, providing you with the skills to thrive in either academia or in industry.

Our range of optional modules will also let you specialise in your own area of interest, while also developing your analytical skills. You’ll take on evidence-based, interdisciplinary research relevant to the world today, giving you a competitive edge as you enter the workplace or pursue further study.
