LEVEL OF STUDY
I contacted several potential supervisors from various universities but was instantly seduced by the accessibility and generosity of spirit of staff from the School of Literature and Languages at the University of Surrey .

The experiences and opportunities provided by Surrey have enhanced various skills that are highly valued in the job market. These include adaptability, communication skills, organisational abilities, critical thinking, and intercultural competence.
The University of Surrey demonstrates a strong commitment to inclusivity and support for minority groups on campus. I was particularly impressed by an inclusive meeting that aimed to gather suggestions and advice regarding our students' needs.

By studying media and communications I was able to cover a lot of topics, which helped me decide what area of media I wanted to go into for my career.
The course is a chance for me to upskill in terms of translation technologies, develop my understanding of the languages industries and expand my existing translation practice.
