    The MA in Translation Studies launched by The Centre for Translation and Intercultural Studies in 1995 has been one of the longest-running and most prestigious postgraduate degrees offered by a UK institution.

    The  MA in Translation and Interpreting Studies (MATIS)   aims to equip you with the knowledge and skills for a career in translation and/or interpreting and/or for other professions which require expertise in cross-cultural communication. With its combination of theory and practice, it also provides excellent preparation for further study and research at PhD level.

    The translation course units are offered in all language combinations (i.e. English and any other language). However, the interpreting course units are offered in specific language combinations (Arabic, Chinese, French, German and Spanish).

    MA students come from Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America; each year ten or more different languages are spoken by the MA group - a truly multilingual environment in the centre of Manchester!
