This Modern Languages with Translation at the University of Nottingham develops your communication skills, builds your confidence and helps you stand out to future employers. You can teach English in a school or study at one of our partner universities. However, we encourage you to work for a translation company to further develop your practical translation skills. We also have a dedicated year abroad office.


This course offers you the opportunity to explore your interest in a translation career or in other careers involving languages. You will gain concrete translation experience to help you succeed in making the transition from university to employment, and potentially make yourself stand out further from the crowd by learning a less well-known European language. 

There are profession-oriented modules embedded into every year of the degree. These aim to boost career prospects and prepare you for the translation industry

Like other courses involving modern languages at Nottingham, the course allows you to develop a range of professional and transferable skills, applicable on graduation to many different careers.
