New Courses from the University of Nottingham BA Contemporary Chinese Studies with International Relations and BA Modern Languages with Translation

Starting in September 2014 The University of Nottingham are running 2 new language and culture focused degrees.

BA (Hons) Contemporary Chinese Studies with International Relations

This programme is aimed at undergraduate students from the UK and Europe, North America and Asia with an interest in both contemporary China and global politics and international relations. It is suitable for UK, EU and international students.

This course offers you the opportunity to combine your study of elements of international relations and global issues with in-depth study of contemporary China. The options available in the Chinese studies element of the course allow you either to range broadly across various aspects of and disciplinary approaches to contemporary China, or to specialise more in China’s political development, including both high-level and grassroots politics, drawing on the critical mass of research and teaching expertise in the School of Contemporary Chinese Studies in this area.

BA Modern Languages with Translation

This four-year course offers you the opportunity to study one or two languages to degree level while gaining practical experience in translating and interpreting.

You may study one language post-A level (French, German, Portuguese*, Spanish or Russian) and opt to add another post-A level language or study Dutch, German, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian/Croatian, Slovene or Spanish at beginners’ level.

The course combines academic rigour with a strong practical emphasis and includes training in interpreting, and in technical and literary translation. You will also be given an introduction to technological tools for translators. Wherever possible, translation assignments are modelled on real-life situations and you will be encouraged to take up at least one translation internship or voluntary translation assignment for an external organisation during your course. You will spend your third year abroad where you will have the opportunity to study at one of our partner institutions specialising in translation/interpreting or carry out a translation-related work placement.
