Supported and guided by at least two expert supervisors, our practice-based PhD program in Translation Studies will give you the practical experience and opportunity to develop your expertise as a researcher and the professional tools needed to undertake translation work for professional purposes.

This PhD program has three components: extensive research, creating a body of translated work, and a critical commentary of the translated pieces. You will also undertake professional development, designed to help you become a more effective researcher, and develop general professional skills valuable to prospective employers in academia, industry, government and the broader community. During the program you will be encouraged to publish your work-in-progress and/or to seek publishers for it.
