Hello. In searching for a distance Master's course in translation (Japanese to English), I found the University of Sheffield's MA in Advanced Japanese Studies - Japanese to English Translation. I'm interested in hearing reviews of the course from people who have enrolled. Were you satisfied with the content and the way the course was administered? On a slightly tangential topic, has the Master's helped you professionally?

Thank you for your feedback.

Not a full MA in translation Jun 18, 2009

I just had a quick look at Sheffield's web page about this course. If I were you I'd contact them and ask some questions - this doesn't look like an MA in translation, but rather an MA in Japanese with possibly a couple of modules in translation.

It might nonetheless be a very useful course, and I know of several JP>EN translators with lower-level qualifications who do very well indeed.
