"Surrey, and in particular the Centre for Translation Studies, has an excellent international reputation for its research and postgraduate tuition."

"My undergraduate degree from the University of Surrey focused on foreign languages, with German and Russian. I then trained as a secondary school teacher of German, French and Russian. In 2010, I was awarded the Gunilla Anderman scholarship to study for a PhD in the Centre for Translation Studies at the University of Surrey.

Surrey, and in particular the Centre for Translation Studies, has an excellent international reputation for its research and postgraduate tuition. I was aware of the potential PhD supervisors in the Department and was confident that they would be able to offer me the support needed to conduct PhD research.

I had a lot of fun during my first degree and felt that I wanted to take my studies further, so I decided to look into funding opportunities for PhD research and applied for the scholarship which I now hold.

After four years as an undergraduate and nearly three years as a postgraduate student at Surrey, I have become very fond of the University. In the Centre for Translation Studies, the relationship between staff and students is very good, with a research atmosphere which inspires PhD students."
