This MA is a distance-learning Masters programme for aspiring or practising translators. It is suitable for Modern Languages graduates offering any one or two of the following languages in addition to English: Czech, French, German, Italian, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish. The MA combines intensive language-specific practice with training in the theory and practice of translation.
The course is delivered through the Blackboard virtual learning environment. You will study interactively, as part of an online group, led by a tutor. The programme is taught entirely on-line and you are not expected to come to campus at all. However, you are just as much a member of the University as any other student and we are always delighted to welcome you to Bristol if you can get here. If this is not possible, we include you in our lively research community in other ways, by podcasting talks and events. We can also communicate directly with you by phone or Skype if you need help.
We are working with the `European Masters in Translation' (EMT) university network, which was set up by the European Commission in response to a growing shortage of properly qualified translators in the job market. You may decide to study for either an MA, or for a Diploma. The University has close links with professional associations and helps students take advantage of internships in the EU and the UK where possible.
