MA Interpreting and Translating (MAIT)
Acquire the skills needed to work as a conference interpreter and professional translator.

You can also choose to specialise in only Russian or Mandarin, which will allow you to work in both directions (from English and into English, respectively).

Gain the sought-after skills you need for a career in specialist language work. You'll mostly work with the written word to provide translations and specialised language services, such as editing, proofreading, and précis-writing. You can choose to specialise in one language, or build your skills across two languages.
