Hear from a current student
What attracted me most is the engaging, research-inspired environment of the University of Exeter. The way the course is taught is very different from what I was taught in China, I find it really exciting that I can try out different methods of teaching and have more in-depth discussion with my classmates.

Not only does this programme equip me with professional skills to be a translator, but also helps me realise my future career path. There is a work placement as part of my programme - I will be working as a website translator for a hotel. It will be a brand new experience for me to work in a foreign country and has helped build my knowledge of job searching, CV writing and interview techniques.
