The Faculty of Arts uses a hybrid admissions model. Students may apply for admission to the Broad-based Programme or to a specific Major Programme. The aim of the Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Translation Programme is to “educate bilingual and bicultural communicators for professional translation and language careers”. Teachers of the Department of Translation, Interpreting and Intercultural Studies share with students their expertise in academic research, their experience of frontline fieldwork in interlingual and intercultural communication, and their pedagogic vision. Students are thus prepared to meet the cultural, socio-political and economic needs of the local community, as well as those of a rapidly developing China.  The Programme provides a strong mix of both academic intellectual training and professionally-oriented practice. It offers a range of specialist options such as Translation Technology, Localisation, Spanish-Chinese Translation, Literary Translation, Media Translation, Legal Translation, Scientific-Technological Translation, and different forms of Interpreting. In their final year, all students undertake a one-year Honours Project. This involves an extended translation of 10,000 words, plus critical commentary, or alternatively a research project of similar length. The Programme also incorporates a one-semester project-based internship – see further below.
