Key Features of Chinese-English Translation and Language Teaching MA

Student Quote

“I chose to study the MA in Chinese-English Translation and Language Teaching as it would be helpful for my academic career. After writing one of my essays for an MA module, I decided I would like to continue my study and go on to PhD. I found my ability and critical thinking skills changed a lot. I also studied the interpreting and translation practice MA module which gave me experience if I want to be a interpreter or translator in the future.

I like Swansea University. I have lived in the campus for nearly two years. I have to admit that I enjoy watching the sun shining over the campus and Singleton Park. Lecturers and staff are professional and friendly. They are always happy to help student solve different problems. I would like to continue my academic career here as a PhD student."
