MA in Literary Translation at the University of East Anglia:
The course focuses exclusively on literary translation and combines translation practice with translation theory. Described by former external examiner Dr Francis Jones as 'deservedly a UK leader in literary translation studies', this innovative course has been training literary translators for over two decades.
In 2011 UEA's Creative Writing programme was awarded a Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education, the UK's most prestigious higher education award, in recognition of its continuing excellence in delivering innovative courses at a world-class level.
