The BA English-Chinese Translation and Interpreting Programme I have been studying so far is of great importance to my career development. The theoretical and practical modules involved offer me the knowledge on related translation theories, interpreting strategies as well as professional training through which I can put myself in real working circumstances. With abundant practice opportunities and enlightening feedbacks from helpful lecturers, my translation and interpreting skills have been honed. I think I will benefit a lot from this programme in my future career.

I am an exchange student from Hong Kong majoring in BATI, and have engaged in the course E-C Translation Workshop (Business, Administration and Law). The module content is comprehensive in scope, comprising of various essential practical components in the commercial field. The tutor is knowledgeable and willing to take care of our progress and needs. She also provides adequate practice and detailed constructive feedback, which allows us to put what we learn into action and learn from mistakes. All in all, my studies at Swansea University really help to pursue my future career and I do really treasure this valuable experience.

During my stay in Swansea University, I took four modules, including Computer-Assisted Translation, Introduction to Translation Theory, Translation Workshop (Journalism and Media) and Advanced English for academic purposes. I have a pretty good impression of the modules regarding lecturers' quality and clear course outline. The construction and delivery of these courses are similar to what I took at my home university. Therefore, I catch up with the pace of study in the UK pretty fast. Teachers are willing to help and always providing useful feedback on my translation work.
