    Hello everyone!

    I'm interested in pursuing a masters in Translation as soon as I'm done with my BA. I've heard about several universities that offer Translation programs in the UK. However, I don't know which one I should go to (IF I get accepted to any, of course).

    I want to know which university you consider the best in terms of:
    -The uni helping you enter the EU job market (I'm an overseas student)
    -A good social life during the year that the MA takes to complete
    -The university's reputation around the globe

    Thank you very much!

    University of Leeds have some good programmes - http://www.leeds.ac.uk/cts/en/index.htm

    University of Westminster and University of Bath have some as well.

    Failing those, and if you want to go abroad for some 2 year programmes, you should check out the schools in Paris and Geneva

    Hey! Thanks for the reply. I e-mailed people at Bath and they replied saying you have to be native in English and, unfortunately, I'm not . I'd heard about Westminster's reputation, and I'm gonna look through Leeds' Webpage.
    Thank you!

    Yes, those three mentioned are the best in the UK but there are several other ones that are also recognised by employers and the EU Commission. Have a look at this.

    Sorry but I couldn't help smiling a little at this. Having just completed a one-year Masters, my social life was non-existant! If I wasn't studying/researching/writing, I was asleep. Just a heads-up on that one

    ETA: Ah - this is a resurrected zombie thread. Oh well...
