Modern Languages at the University of Glasgow (1): great new post-grad courses

01Mar12

On 28 February the Guardian newspaper published a list of Modern languages and linguistics postgraduate and master’s courses available in the UK in 2012. For some reason, the list doesn’t include the post-grad courses available at Glasgow University from academic year 2012-13.

Glasgow’s School of Modern Languages and Cultures will be offering an MSc in Translation Studies: Translation & Professional Practice and an MLitt in European Studies: Cultures, Societies & Languages.

Both these courses are great news in themselves, and especially welcome after the threats of drastic cuts to  Modern Languages teaching. I’m sure the Translation Studies course in particular will tick the right sort of “employability” boxes for the University management.

Here are more kudos for Glasgow:

According to the International Student Barometer 2011:
International students report satisfaction levels of more than 97% with the expert lecturers in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures.
International students in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures report more than 90% satisfaction with their learning at Glasgow.

According to the Times 2012 League Table:
French at the University of Glasgow is ranked number 1 in Scotland and is in the top 10 in the UK.
German at the University of Glasgow is ranked 2nd in Scotland.
Italian at the University of Glasgow is ranked first in Scotland.

Well done to all at the School of Modern Languages and Cultures!
