There is an increasingly high demand for translation skills in the UK and Europe. We offer a specialist translation programme which provides you with practical and professional translation skills alongside in-depth language tuition in either one or two modern languages. Our translation curriculum (in line with the Institute of Linguists and the Institute for Translators and Interpreters Standards) will focus on combining the theory behind translation with methodology and practical skills. In addition you will study core language modules and in some cases, cultural options which will cover a wide range of country specific and general topics, such as European Cinema. In the final year, you have the opportunity to write a dissertation, which stimulates initiative and can serve as a useful preparation for postgraduate study. Distinctive features The distinctive features of the course include: The opportunity to learn translation methodologies at the same time as learning a modern language/s. A year abroad in your third year where you will be given the opportunity to use and practise the language/s of your choice. A focus on employability. You will be taught specialised translation and professional translation skills which will assist you in pursuing a career as a translator or go on to further study in the field of translation studies.
