Translation and Interpreting

This course provides you with highly professional training aimed at the translation and interpreting markets, and the opportunity to build on your existing language skills to develop a career in those sectors. The course is suitable whether English is your 1st language or not. It involves translation with 1 main language (Chinese, French, Italian, Polish or Spanish) and English, consecutive and public service interpreting, a thesis or project, and a range of option modules.

Entry requirements

You are expected to have a 1st degree either in modern languages or other subject. Mature linguists without a degree, but with sufficient working experience in translation and/or interpreting are invited to apply. You will need fluent written and spoken English to study at postgraduate level. If your 1st language is not English, an attainment of at least IELTS 6.5 or equivalent must be demonstrated. There is no formal entrance exam, but in many cases we will test your language competence by setting you 2 translations. The test pieces will be emailed to you once we have received your application.
