About

One of the most flexible translation studies programmes in the UK, our degree brings together the expertise of research-active staff from the various language units within the School of Translation Studies at The University of Edinburgh.

Overview

You will join what is arguably the most international research community within the School, using your research skills both to provide you with an intellectual and philosophical perspective on the activity of translation, and to enhance your translation research or practice.

This diversity of research aims to produce self-reflective and theoretically minded researchers or translators.
