About

The Translation programme at Queen's University Belfast provides a vibrant environment for both disciplinary and interdisciplinary scholarship.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Recognised as a centre of excellence for research into the languages, literatures, histories, linguistics, visual cultures, and cultural identities of Europe and beyond, the Centre is founded on a dynamic and forward-looking research ethos. Translation is a field of research that is expanding dynamically. We welcome innovative research proposals that interrogate – through either practice- or research-led projects, translation in a variety of areas and modes.

The Translation programme is offered at Queen's University Belfast .

Career Prospects

Now more than ever postgraduate qualifications in Translation and/or Interpreting are in high demand. Many of our graduates work immediately as free-lance professionals, some even choosing to launch their own agencies. 

Others have recently secured employment in higher education (e.g. in China, Jordan, Iraq, Brazil, University of Glasgow, University of East Anglia, QUB), advertising agencies, companies - both as translators and –researchers in private and public companies and institutions.
