Hi everybody, I'm Italian and I would love to do a MA's degree in Translation and Interpreting or/ and Audio-visual translation, such as Subtitling. Is there anyone who can advise me some universities which have this kind of MA? thanks

Newcastle and Edinburgh have good courses.

I know a friend at Westminster and her class has plenty complaints about quality of teaching and some lecturers are just adjuncts. The administration is not addressing the problem. Avoid Westminster.

Avoid Westminster.
Depending on the campus, the area you live in may not be that great either.

Bristol has also a strong language department with translation courses. Good student to lecturer ratio and rigorous. A former neighbour is enrolled and very happy with MA quality.

I mean avoid Westminster Uni. Besides academic concern, it is a commuter uni with mostly evening classes and London is expensive.

I know someone who did and someone currently on the MA Translation Studies at Cardiff - he's actually doing Spanish and Italian to English translations, mentioned the practical and theoretical aspect of the course, plus professional guest lecturers and such. And my other friend did her master project on subtitling.

Don't know much about the others though.
