Mandarin Studies

For native speakers of Mandarin, Swansea University offers a BA (Hons) in English-Chinese Translation and Interpreting. This programme is delivered principally by Dr Sabrina Wang, a specialist in conference interpreting. Sabrina will be joined in September 2019 by a new colleague.

All students of Mandarin, whatever their level, can take part in the weekly Café Cha Cha where they are able to practise their language skills with exchange students from China. Students can also join the University Chinese Society.

At postgraduate level, native speakers of Mandarin can develop their areas of specialisation via our MA degrees in Translation and Interpreting and Professional Translation, both of which feature internships and the chance to study abroad. We have a thriving community of postgraduate research students working on topics involving Mandarin in Translation and Interpreting.
