Hey Guys, I’m getting my bachelors degree this year in English language and literature and I really want to do my Ma in Translation & Interpretation.
Bath offers a course that combines both (translation & interpretation) and Edinburgh has a Ma in Translation. I personally believe that Edinburgh is better overall but the degree does not include interpretation.
Which are the best universities in the U.K for translation? And since I do not live in the U.K is Bath considered a very good and prestigious uni?

I don’t care about nightlife or cost of living eg. My main concern is the quality of the university

If you're only concerned about quality then surely league tables are the best place to look? But I think it really depends which language you're looking at. Unis for European languages will be very different to Asian languages and African languages.
