Program description

Translation and Interpreting PhD

The School of Literature and Languages is home to the Centre for Translation Studies (CTS), a well-established specialist research centre dedicated to teaching, scholarship and research in translation studies. Since our founding in 1982, we’ve established an international reputation for both our research and our innovative taught programmes. Our scholars are actively involved in the national and international translation and interpreting studies scene.

Our research reflects the evolving nature of the discipline, encompassing new technologies, audio description, sociological perspectives on translation and innovative practices in interpreting.

You’ll benefit from excellent facilities, including specialist software to support corpus-based analysis, subtitling, computer-assisted translation and terminography and audio-description. We’re also home to state-of-the-art interpreting facilities with integrated videoconferencing.

You will be part of the interdisciplinary School of Literature and Languages, with research active staff in English Literature, Creative Writing, Film Studies, Translation Studies, Theoretical and Applied Linguistics and Literary and Area Studies.

You’ll join a cosmopolitan, multilingual and multicultural community of students and scholars, and we see our research students as being a core part of the School.

Our translation studies team has been awarded more than £600,000 of external research funding since 2012. We’re part of a number of externally funded doctoral training partnerships, and you might be able to benefit from a studentship from us if you’re suitably qualified.
