Urgent Help Needed Please: PhD in Translation Studies
Thread poster: Rafee
Sep 4, 2011


I have finished my MA degree in translation studies and I have recently received the national scholarship of my country to pursue my PhD degree, by research, in Translation studies (Arabic-English) in the UK. However, I cannot reach a decision whether to join Leeds or Salford. I would really be very grateful if anyone can update me about their reputation in the field of translation and if anyone can tell me about his/her own experience. Many thanks for any advice you might be able give me.

Salford for my BA Sep 5, 2011

Hi Rafee,
For what it's worth... I chose Salford for my BA back in the mid-1980s. I was interested in a practical rather than theoretical approach to language and translation, but your priorities as a PhD student may be different.

Did you take a look at the info. on the language department's website? http://www.languages.salford.ac.uk/staff/academic-staff/staff_arabic.php
There are detailed profiles of all the instructors - do any of their research interests match yours?

I was more than happy with my decision back then and would not hesitate to recommend Salford. Good luck with your decision!



Thank you! Sep 5, 2011

Thank you very much indeed Ms. Sarah. That is very informative. I hope I will be happy with my decision as wellicon_smile.gif
