Hi all

Does anyone have a sense of which of the following Master of Translation (by distance) courses have the most practical, exercise-based curriculum? (i.e. less theory-based)
- University of Portsmouth
- Open University
- Bristol University

Uni of Birmingham has an MA in Translation, but I haven't included it here because, from what I could online of their curriculum, it looks quite theoretical (though happy to be corrected if wrong).

Obviously there are other factors that come into play (cost, time etc.) but the practicality of the curriculum is the most important for me.

Appreciate any advice!
