Course summary

The MPhil Translation by Practice offers a new approach to studying Translation, incorporating a creative practical project. This can include translating a book or play, subtitling a film, or translating song lyrics or poetry. Whatever your passion, you will be able to incorporate it into this research degree, by engaging with translation as a creative practice. You will be evaluated based on a written thesis of up to 70,000 words, as well as a creative project of a minimum of 30,000 words.

If you wish to make use of translation memory as part of your project, computer-aided translation software for the degree is provided by Memsource, with training facilitated by Dr Sarah Maitland, who is a Memsource Certified Trainer and Senior Lecturer in Translation Studies. All students are given the opportunity to apply for Student Certification and become part of an active community. Through the Memsource Talent Endorsement Program, the top-scoring certified students will be able to compete for paid translation work experience.

The Department of English and Comparative Literature consists of some 40 scholars and creative writers whose work is acknowledged and cited internationally. We offer a stimulating environment for undertaking postgraduate research in English Literature (including American Literature and literary theory), World Literature, Comparative Literature, Linguistics, Translation, and Creative Writing.

We particularly encourage cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary research in emerging fields of study and creative practice. As well as working with scholars and writers of international standing, you will have the opportunity to play an active role in a vibrant research environment which includes the Richard Hoggart Lectures in Literature and Culture, the annual Goldsmiths Prize for bold and innovative fiction, and specialist seminars offered by the Goldsmiths Writers' Centre, the Goldsmiths Literature Seminars (GLITS), the Goldsmiths Linguistics Seminars (GoldLingS), and the e-journal, GLITS-e.
