Entry requirements

**Minimum requirements** 2:i undergraduate degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject. An MA (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline, with a final mark (or predicted final mark) of 65 or above. We recognise that practising literary translators applying to the practice-based pathway may have come to the profession from a background outside literary studies and/or modern foreign languages and/or the broader humanities and that previous degrees may not necessarily be in a “relevant” subject. Professional experience will therefore be taken into account in the assessment of an applicant’s suitability for the programme where an applicant comes from an academic background outside the arts and humanities. For the practice-based pathway, a sample of translated work should accompany all applications. **English language requirements** You can find out more about our English language requirements. This course requires the following: - Band C - IELTS overall (Academic) score of 7.5 and component scores. **International qualifications** We welcome applications from students with other internationally recognised qualifications.
