Languages Interpreting and Translating (LINT) and Applied Languages and Translating (ALT) follow the same programme for the first three years. In both degrees two foreign or signed languages are studied to degree level. A compulsory placement year is spent abroad at two partner institutions, or for British Sign Language (BSL) students, an in-work placement in the UK signing community for one of the two semesters. Students with only one language at post-Higher/A-Level follow an accelerated intensive language course during Year 1 and join the mainstream language courses from Year 2. The degrees focus on practical language skills, communication studies, European studies and linguistics/ translation studies.
Accredited by the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI).
Accredited by the National Registers of Communication Professionals working with Deaf and Deafblind People (NRCPD) for the purpose of fulfilling the educational requirements to become a Registered Sign Language Interpreter.
