This flexible degree allows you to study two modern languages ? from French, German and Spanish ? or to combine one of them with English. Learning a language and about how languages work (including English) opens doors to other cultures and communities, and gives you experience of the world that goes deeper than the average tourist trip. It can also provide a key to the global workplace. By the end of your studies, you'll understand how language is structured and used in different contexts and be an effective and culturally aware communicator ? attributes that are increasingly valuable in today's global environment.

This certificate explores ideas about what social work is ? using case studies with children, older people, mental-health communities, children with disabilities and people with learning disabilities to apply learning to practice contexts. You'll also build key skills in information and communication technologies, digital and information literacy and reflective writing.

This module aims to consolidate your understanding of translation theories studied previously by applying them to the practical task of translating. You can choose to study French, German, Spanish, Italian, Mandarin Chinese or Modern Standard Arabic, in combination with English. You'll engage in professional and collaborative translation, peer review, quality control, and specialised translation. You'll use and evaluate the latest cloud-based translation technologies, including translation memories, machine translation and term bases, and undertake a range of complex translation tasks to and from your main language and English. Translation professionals will contribute to the module, and you'll put their advice into practice when engaging in authentic tasks, for example, audiovisual translation and volunteering with open translation communities.
