Career options

The master's degree in Translation and Intercultural Studies periodically contacts its former students with the aim of learning about the percentage of students currently working, and those working at university or in research activities. The result of the surveys point to a majority of graduates working within the translation sector, with specific profiles such as the following:
  • Freelance translator 
  • In-house translator 
  • Project manager
  • Revisor
  • Editor
  • Language technician

The research specialisation "Translatology and Intercultural Studies" prepares students to continue onto a PhD programme. The specialisation counts with the extensive experience of the Department of Translation and Interpreting and East Asian Studies in training future researchers in translation and interpreting, and with the department's current research lines and groups

Moreover, a high percentage of former students from the research specialisation have gone on to enrol in PhD programmes in different universities around the world.
