Pathway to a degree in Translation

Pathway to Translation

Pathways Open Day

There will be a Pathways Open Day on Wednesday 11th January from 12.00 noon to 2.00pm in the Cyber Café at Continuing and Professional Education, 21-23 Senghennydd Road, Cardiff CF24 4AG. This is an informal drop-in session for adult learners to find out about the part-time pathways available and funding options.  No need to book, just turn-up!

This part-time Progression Pathway has been developed to help you realise your ambition to translate your love of languages into a degree level qualification. It’s designed for those with life experience and we welcome applications from students who may have been away from formal education for several years.

The Pathway to a Degree in Translation is a collaboration between Continuing and Professional Education and the School of Modern Languages at Cardiff University. It combines our vast experience of supporting adult learners with the School’s exciting teaching and research expertise. Pathway modules are taught by people who have expert subject knowledge and the ability to support, inspire and share their learning with you.

The Pathway to a Degree in Translation is made up of 60 credits of study. It is therefore equivalent to 50% of the first year of a degree and is intended to provide you with the linguistic skills and intellectual preparation needed to study for a degree in Translation at Cardiff University.

Pathway students need to study two languages from the following group: French, German, Italian and Spanish. You need to gain 30 credits in each of your two languages at Stage E or higher for a total of 60 credits. You can take courses in both languages in parallel in order to complete the Pathway in one year or you can take up to three years to do so.


You will find all of the Stage E, F and G courses in French, German, Italian and Spanish on offer this Autumn in the Modern Languages section.
