UK MA and MSc Scholarships in Languages, Swansea University
For the academic session 2007/08, Swansea University is offering up to 12 Taught Masters Bursaries to applicants from the UK or EU aiming to pursue MAs in Languages. Each award is worth GBP 1,500 towards tuition fees. Swansea University is also offering a number of International Office Postgraduate Scholarships. These awards make a GBP 1,000 contribution to fees for applicants from outside the EU. Both types of funding are available for the MA Translation with Language Technology and the MA Literary Translation.
MA Translation with Language Technology (MATLT)
The MATLT is a professionally focused, integrated course designed to ensure that entrants with proven foreign language competence emerge as successful and marketable future professionals equipped with the skills now in demand in the language services industry worldwide. Particular attention is paid to in-depth training with the latest Computer-Assisted Translation tools and to key techniques for building up translation specialisms. Our philosophy can be summed up in the phrase `hands on`: students learn by doing and we aim to teach strategies as much as solutions, based on our own extensive experience of working as and training translators. Successful MATLT graduates are now employed all over the world as freelance and in-house translators, project managers, terminologists, software developers and in many other capacities.
MA Literary Translation (MALT)
The MALT is designed to offer both an independent, intellectually stimulating scheme of study for advanced linguists and literary specialists, and a practical and theoretical training for those wishing to pursue literary translation in the course of their career. It is also suitable for practising translators who do not yet have but wish to gain formal qualifications. If you have a strong interest in literature and the specific features of literary expression in different languages, this flexible programme will give you a unique opportunity to develop your interests.
Both MA degree schemes can be pursued as full-time or part-time programmes. They are suitable for recent graduates of single or joint honours BAs (or international equivalents) in fields related to Languages, as well as for people with a less formally documented background who have significant relevant experience. All successful applicants for the MAs can be considered for either the Bursaries or the Scholarships, depending on their nationality.
