Our MA in Translation Studies, a collaborative programme offered jointly by the Department of English Language and Applied Linguistics and the Department of Modern Languages, has been awarded the prestigious EMT (European Masters in Translation) membership.

EMT is a quality label by the European Commission, Directorate-General for Translation to Masters programmes that comply with their strict quality specifications. A committee of experts assessed MA programmes based on the structure the programme, coverage of identified EMT competences, available human resources, infrastructure and career support and mentoring. The committee was particularly impressed by the right balance of theoretical and practical modules, as well as by the Translation in a Professional Context and Translation Technology modules that prepare students to enter the translation profession.
