International MA students:

Two translation courses are part of the MA curriculum.

Do you have a certificate for German at the A1, A2, or B1 level?  You are not required to take the Translation classes in the Practical Language Program (Translation English-German; Translation German-English). Instead, you may take German language classes at the Language Centre, but you must register for these courses online through OPAL (found under “Sprachenzentrum” / “Deutsch als Fremdsprache”).

Do you have a certificate for German at the B2 level? You can take the C1-level German course at the Language Centre. After you have completed the C1-level German course, you may take the Translation German-English course the following semester. If you do not want to attend the Translation German-English course, you may attend a specialisation course at the C1 German level (e.g. Wissenschaftliches Schreiben) instead, but you must register online through OPAL (found under “Sprachenzentrum” / “Deutsch als Fremdsprache” or “Wissenschaftliches Schreiben”).

If you have any questions, please contact the Practical Language Programme Coordinator
