This Translation Studies (Spanish) Honours degree offered at the University of Westminster gives you professionally oriented training in the skills, knowledge and competencies which will allow you to build a career as a professional translator.

Overview

Through this Translation Studies (Spanish) Honours degree offered at the University of Westminster, you will develop your knowledge of language structure, register, textuality and discourse, through the application of linguistic concepts to practically orientated translation tasks. You will also gain the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.

The course offers French and Spanish as main languages, which you can combine with another language (Arabic, Chinese, French or Spanish) or the Global Communication route, depending on your entry point. We accept intermediate (post-A Level) and proficient speakers in French and Spanish. This is a linguistically challenging course and we may need to assess you in order to determine your entry point and suitability.

Career Path
