Attend our open afternoon to experience Interpreting and Translating at the University of Bath. From touring our interpreting labs on campus, to hearing from experts in the industry, our open afternoon is designed to give you a taste of our specialist courses and the career paths they may take you on.

We are delighted to feature two guest speakers who will talk about their experiences of working at a senior level in interpreting and translating in international organisations. There will be an opportunity to ask them questions afterwards. A panel of graduates will also be ready to take your questions about studying interpreting and translating at postgraduate level at Bath and how it helped their career progression.

The University of Bath is internationally renowned for training interpreters and translators. As you will hear in the talks, many of our graduates have gone on to work in international organisations such as the EU and UN, as well as other language services around the world. Our courses are taught by highly experienced tutors who previously or currently work as professional translators, editors, translation managers or professional interpreters.
