About this program
MPhil/Phd Translation (by practice)
The MPhil/PhD Translation by Practice offers a new approach to studying Translation, incorporating a creative practical project. This can include translating a book or play, subtitling a film, or translating song lyrics or poetry.
Whatever your passion, you will be able to incorporate it into this research degree, by engaging with translation as a creative practice.
You will be evaluated based on a written thesis of up to 70,000 words, as well as a creative project of a minimum of 30,000 words.
If you wish to make use of translation memory as part of your project, computer-aided translation software for the degree is provided by Memsource, with training facilitated by Dr Sarah Maitland, who is a Memsource Certified Trainer and Senior Lecturer in Translation Studies. All students are given the opportunity to apply for Student Certification and become part of an active community. Through the Memsource Talent Endorsement Program, the top-scoring certified students will be able to compete for paid translation work experience.
Applicants should normally possess at least a first degree (normally of upper second class honours standard or above) or equivalent.
Applicants should also normally have (or expect to be awarded) a taught Masters in a relevant subject area.
Where an applicant possesses non-standard qualifications or equivalent experience, these will be considered.
No prior qualification in Translation Studies is required for admission to the programme, but relevant equivalent experience in contexts of translation, interculturality and language transfer must be demonstrated through the personal statement.
We accept a wide range of international qualifications. Find out more about the qualifications we accept from around the world.
