Translation MPhil/PhD

We warmly welcome enquiries from applicants who are keen to register for doctoral research in Translation. We normally require applicants to have an MA or equivalent qualification in a related field.

Most students start their period of registration in October, though a January start date is also possible. Students wishing to start at any other point in the academic year must seek approval from the department before an offer is made.

Applications are welcome in any of the areas covered by our supervision expertise in translation. You may pursue a topic based entirely within one or with a combination of the following languages: Chinese, French, German and Spanish. We are also interested in projects which are comparative or transcultural. Unfortunately, we cannot currently offer supervision at either MA or PhD level in Arabic-language topics. It is possible to receive joint supervision by Languages and Cultures and another department in the university.

If you wish to discuss your proposed research topic and opportunities for supervision, please contact the Director of Postgraduate Studies.
