This is a very international course with people form many different cultures and languages. The tutors are all practising translators with various areas of expertise and specialisation and are always willing to help and feel passionate about the course. I was allowed to enter directly into year 2, and I have felt very welcome. I have tried universities in Denmark, the Netherlands and Germany, but this is the best one. London Met also has an agreement with the Institute of Linguists- successful completion of one particular module gives you exemption from the first exam of the Diploma in Translation (DipTrans). The skills I have learned are definitely demanded- people who think that there are no careers in languages are mistaken!
All tutors are professionals still working in the translation industry, so they can really help with translation problems and provide insight into the industry. This BA course has an agreement with the Institute of Linguists (IoL), meaning that successful candidates will be credited with the first exam of the Diploma in Translation (DipTrans). I was allowed to enter directly in year two, saving me time and money. All staff and course leaders are welcoming and helpful, and the students on this course come from a variety of countries and walks of life. I have tried Universities in Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands, but this is the best one. It is also amazing to realise how many employers look for languages- don't dismiss this as a pure "Arts and Humanities" course- translators and linguists are sought after and can earn good money! This also provides valuable skills like Trados skills and Personal continuous development.
