The postgraduate programme in Applied Linguistics and Literary Theory, in drawing on the knowledge fields of both its disciplines, is aimed at the specialized education and training and research needs of language practitioners such as translators, interpreters, text editors, language planners, copywriters and language teachers. Translation and interpreting are complex linguistic, cognitive and textual processes that, among other things, also entail socio-cultural mediation. Given the complexity of these activities and hence the interdisciplinary nature of language practice, these programmes offer a balance of theoretical, practical and experiential knowledge and skills.

Admission requirements

A BA programme or equivalent qualification in Linguistics, at least one language or a relevant specialization in Communication at third-year level. Students specializing in Translation and Editing must have passed (a) at least one further language at second-year level and (b) a departmental translation and editing test.
