'A crucial bridge between academia and professional life'

We are delighted to deliver our degrees in Translation and Interpreting in collaboration with a wide range of external associates, from both industry bodies and language services companies. Whether they are presenting to our students about life as a professional linguist, mentoring the managers of our simulated translation companies, providing genuine translation commissions for students to work on, or offering 3-month internships (and sometimes also a first job in the industry), these partners form a crucial bridge between academia and professional life. We are always grateful for their commitment to educating and training the next generation of translators and interpreters, and their invaluable input into our programmes. Here’s what some of them have said about working with Swansea University and our students...
