I am thinking about doing the MA in Translation from UWE. Has anyone heard anything about it? Or has anyone done it?

It looks like i will also be accepted by other Universities, so i would be interested what kind of reputation UWE has.

You got the name wrongicon_wink.gif

In terms of general reputation I'd say it doesn't have a particularly bad or good one. It's a relatively "new" university. I wasn't aware it had a translation MA course though...

I am looking at the MA in Translation offered by Portsmouth University, which seems to have a good reputation for languages and linguistics.

I also looked at the UWE course and if I remember rightly I decided it was too theoretical compared with Portsmouth which seemed to have more courses which were of practical use to me as I am already working as a translator. This may not be the case for you, of course.

I looked at portsmouth aswell Aug 28, 2010

As far as i can remember, the fees are trippled if you are not physically in the Uk when you are doing the course. I am not 100 percent certain, i think that was it though. I will look into it again. Does anyone know anyone ho has done the UWE MA?
