Description

Description
Studying Modern Languages, Translation and Interpreting gives you the opportunity to work intensively with three languages. If you have a UK qualification, two languages would be English and your A level language and you can then start a new language without prior knowledge. You will not only acquire a high level of knowledge in foreign languages, but also refine the command of your native language. This gives you access to foreign cultures through the communication with people representing these cultures themselves.
Modern Languages, Translation and Interpreting also offers excellent job perspectives. The increase in international contacts means that more and more well-qualified translators are necessary. With a good qualification in translation you can get a share in a world-wide, multi-billion market.
