Middlesex University

Course Introduction

Our new translation courses have been designed to provide students with the opportunity to gain an insight into the needs of a professional translator in a globalised world where businesses, institutions and governmental organisations require more translation work. We work closely with the Institute of Linguists and are the only programme in London which offers specialised business or law modules alongside their translation modules. Students have the opportunity to participate in an Erasmus exchange after they have completed taught modules at Middlesex, and research and write up their dissertation in the translation departments of prestigious partner universities in Alicante, Geneva, Heidelberg, Innsbruck, Leipzig, Paris, Vienna or Warsaw.

Course Modules

Compulsory modules: Translating business and legal texts; translating technical texts; translation theories and cultures; research methods and dissertation. Optional modules: Globalisation and trade; contemporary management.

Course Additional Entry

For this programme we welcome applications from graduates with a good undergraduate degree (2.1 or equivalent) in a relevant subject such as languages or linguistics, who have a native or near'native command of English and of at least one other language. However as the programme offers business/legal translation and literary/audiovisual translation pathways, we also consider applicants with relevant degrees in those areas, provided they have the required language skills.
