What made Essex my first and only choice was the fact that they offered this unique Masters program—an MA in Translation, Interpreting and Subtitling. Many universities offer the first two disciplines in one course but the subtitling component really piqued my interest.
The course offers a great deal of variety and practicality. I was able to acquire skills and knowledge through preparing speeches and interpreting at student-led conferences, engage classmates in translation challenges, attend seminars and network with industry professionals. State-of-the-art facilities such as interpreting booths and specifically-tailored computer labs only added to the authentic feel of a translator/interpreter setting.
