Translation studies isn’t simply about having a good vocabulary. It’s the ability to reproduce original text and spoken word in an appropriate context, often on demand. Are there regional variances? Are there legal definitions? Are there informal and formal colloquialisms? Having a knowledge of a language’s idioms, natural rhythm and cultural sensitivities are all key skills required to fulfil a successful career in this ever-changing field. Our expert academics will provide advanced theory and practical skills that you can apply to your career. Their research will also inspire you to develop new practices to implement as part of your everyday translation practice.

Whether you choose to study full time on campus, or part time via distance learning, through your studies and independent research you will acquire the advanced skills and knowledge to pursue your passion and enhance your career options.
