There are two translating languages degrees to choose from. One is Languages Interpreting and Translating (LINT) and the other is Applied Languages and Translating (ALT). They both follow the same structure for the first three years. This involves studying two foreign or signed languages to degree level, followed by a compulsory placement year abroad at two of our partner institutions.
Our interpreting and translating course, MA (Hons) Languages Interpreting and Translating, focuses on practical language skills, plus communication, European and linguistics/ translation studies. If you only have one language at post-Higher/A-Level, you'll follow an intensive language course during year one, joining the mainstream language courses in year two.
Our Languages Interpreting and Translating degrees are accredited by the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI).
