Alongside these traditional courses, we offer specialisations that prepare you for a wide range of modern career opportunities in languages and language-related fields – from language technology, editing and translation to spoken language interpreting. With us you can study to become a translator, interpreter or editor, or prepare for a career as a language teacher, writer, journalist or language technologist.
