In 1995 CTIS launched its first postgraduate course in translation studies. With its unique combination of research and practice-oriented course units, our MA in Translation and Interpreting Studies is one of the most comprehensive translation MAs offered by a UK institution. In 2011 we launched an MA in Conference Interpreting for Arabic, Chinese, French, German and Spanish. Find out more about both MA programmes . With more than 20 PhD students, CTIS provides a vibrant environment for doctoral study, offering unique opportunities for research both in core areas of translation studies and at its interdisciplinary cutting edge.
