Course summary

Why choose this course

The growing complexity of international communication requires professionals with skills in both translation and interpreting. This course is one of the few in the UK to give you the skills needed to perform both tasks professionally. The course has a strong practical component to suit the needs of the translation and interpreting market today. We support ‘virtual internships’ which enable you to collaborate with language service providers and build a professional engagement portfolio for future employers. Our European Masters of Translation membership gives you priority access to traineeships at the EU Directorate-General for Translation.

The Centre for Translation Studies (CTS) is currently developing an ambitious new research programme on the responsible integration of human and automated approaches to translation and interpreting, which will inform our teaching and future-proof your career in this evolving industry.

What you will study

Our internationally recognised MA in Translation and Interpreting combines translation and interpreting studies with a strong focus on technology to meet the demands of the global market and current challenges for the language industry.

We offer Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Greek, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish paired with English (languages subject to availability and/or demand).

Practical modules are taught by experienced professional interpreters and translators, simulating realistic scenarios and covering different topics (business, legal, scientific, technical translation).

The background lecture enables you to understand, discuss and justify translation and interpreting-related decisions.

Our range of optional modules will also allow you to customise your learning experience.

Careers and graduate prospects

We offer careers information, advice and guidance to all students whilst studying with us, which is extended to our alumni for three years after leaving the University.

Local and international companies from the language industry who have an active interest in Surrey graduates come to our Centre for Translation Studies. They explain what current and future opportunities they have, providing a chance for you to engage with them directly and kick-start your career in an informal, friendly atmosphere.

Our emphasis on professional development means that you will be well-equipped to begin work as a freelance or in-house translator or interpreter, or as a project manager for business, international organisations and public bodies.
