The University of Edinburgh is recognised in the UK and internationally as a leading research institution.
The 2008 UK Research Assessment Exercise showed that over 79% of research activity in the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures is ranked in the three highest international categories and 50% is classified as 'quality that is world-leading in terms of originality, significance and rigour' and 'quality that is internationally excellent in terms of originality, significance and rigour'.
Research carried out within the Translation Studies Graduate Programme focuses on the following areas:
We have a wide-range of PhD research currently under way. We welcome PhD applications falling under our staff research interests.
Together with colleagues from University College London, the University of Manchester, and the Hong Kong Baptist University, we run a Translation Research Summer School (TRSS).
In 2006, TRSS was offered a grant by the Arts and Humanities Research Council's Collaborative Research Training Scheme for the development of its TRSS online course, whose main aim is to enhance and extend the training offered by TRSS. This resource provides self-access training materials for three of the four modules that constitute the TRSS syllabus, thus allowing all the research students in the three institutions and TRSS alumni to benefit from and follow the same programme of training.
PhD students can register to the online course as soon as they join the University of Edinburgh.
