The MA Interpreting and Translation course at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) is enhanced by our longstanding links with the relevant professional bodies and language service providers both in the UK and abroad.
Our MA programmes comprise a total of nine modules. These cover areas such as conference interpreting, advanced business interpreting, specialised translation, business skills and IT for interpreters/translators. Once the taught part of the course is completed, you will undertake either a dissertation or an extended translation project.
One highlight of the course (Interpreting stream) is our weekly multilingual ‘mock conference’, and students enjoy this module enormously. During the mock conferences, you will be exposed to a wide variety of current topics, as we simulate the real-world scenarios in which professional interpreters work on a daily basis.
Another highlight is our advanced business interpreting module in which you will practise bilateral interpreting in simulated business settings which are based on real assignments undertaken by the various members of teaching staff.
You will graduate with a well-rounded and comprehensive training which will prepare you as fully and realistically as possible for a successful career as an interpreter and/or translator.
