Careers & Destinations


The MA in Translation Theory and Practice allows for various pathways and can include practical translation work involving particular language combinations, courses in electronic communication and translation technology, and more theoretical translation studies. The dissertation either consists of a translation from or into English, or of a study of existing translations. 

Research and PhDs

The PhD in Translation Studies can, in principle, deal with any aspect of translation. Projects addressing theoretical, historical or literary issues are preferred. Research students can enrol on a full-time or a part-time basis. Non-residential registration is possible in certain cases. Both generic and specialised research training is available.
