I was able to work in a supported environment to gain experience in the field of professional translation.
My favourite part of the degree was the hands-on work experience module. I was given the fortunate opportunity to complete a virtual work experience placement with the Open Art Association, in Barcelona. I was able to work in a supported environment to gain experience in the field of professional translation. The team both at the association, and the university, were excellent and I received weekly personalised feedback from a professional translator on how I could improve my own work to such a standard.
Advice for future students
Organisation is key! The process is very rewarding and enjoyable, but do make your time more fluid by keeping yourself organised and using a diary to track weekly objectives.
Commuting from home
I commuted from Kent, where I live, so I didn't spend too much time in the area. Nonetheless, for commuters, the location is very accessible and easy to get to using South Eastern services. Train services also run very regularly to Kings Cross, so being a commuter whilst studying was not an issue.
