Best Universities For Studying Translation In The UK And Ireland

Thinking of studying translation in the United Kingdom or Ireland? Looking at potential courses to study abroad in an English-speaking country? With beautiful campuses, vibrant student life and a reputation for academic excellence, studying your degree in the UK, Northern Ireland or Republic of Ireland is always a good choice!

If you are looking to work in the field of translation or interpreting, it is crucial to lay down a solid base before trying to find work. Many universities in the UK and Ireland specialise in language courses as well as translation and interpreting degrees.

There are many different options available to you. Some choose to study an undergraduate degree in one or two foreign languages (some universities even allow you to choose three) and then follow up their undergraduate 3-year Bachelors or 4-year MA Hons with a Masters in translation or interpretation. Some, however, prefer to stick to a specialised undergraduate degree in the field of their choice. We have put together a definitive list of the English, Scottish, Welsh, Irish and Northern Irish universities that offer translation training courses and degrees. Keep in mind that we have only included degrees focusing uniquely on translation – all these institutions and many more will offer BSc or MA Hons language degrees.
