I am a Russian-speaking Canadian meaning to go to a British university to do there an MA in Translations Studies. So, I am hoping to hear from people who might share pertinent information in regard to:
a) specific schools that are well-recognized for their translation degrees;
b) universities whose programs are particularly well-suited for those meaning to work with Russian language;
c) programs that stand out from the rest in some way.
Also, from what I learned it seems that with Translation Studies one is likely to do most of the studies on his own. Is this statement true only in some cases? I feel like I would rather sign up for a program where one is expected to engage with other students.
Finally, I would prefer possibly a smaller picturesque town to a major urban area with Scotland being of particular interest to me.
Thank you all for the input!
