    Hi everyone,

    I am going to finish my BA in Translation & Interpreting in Germany in 3 months and after that I wanted to move to London to first to a Master's degree (Specialised Translation) at the University of Westminster and start working after that. I've done a little research now and saw that the reputation of the Westminster around the UK is not really good so I was wondering if the reputation of this course is good? I saw that the fashion and media courses have a pretty good reputation but couldn't find much information about the MA in Specialised Translation.

    I am just worried that I'll do the Master's and struggle to find a job afterwards, just because the reputation of this Uni is not very good.

    Can someone help?
    Thanks in advance!

    The thing to look out for is where grads end up and links with industry. Does the course offer work and research opportunities? Reputation doesn't mean much.
