Modern Languages & Translation: University Study & Careers In Translation (MFL) – Graduates Tell Their Story with University Of East Anglia
January 28 @ 12:45 - 13:30
In this webinar we connect with Roger Baines (please click name for profile) at University of East Anglia who will introduce UEA’s Modern Languages courses before we connect with one their graduates, Lucy Harford, who graduated with BA in Modern Languages: French in 2013 and is now a French to English translator and subtitler.
This is a great chance for Year 12 & 13 students (and equivalent) to hear about undergraduate Modern Languages study, the graduate’s university experience, and how this has prepared them for their current role.
There will be lots of opportunities to ask questions and to find out about the decisions the university alumna has made since they were in Year 12 & 13 to successfully embark upon, and establish themselves in, their careers.
An insight into what these roles and opportunities look like during COVID will also be provided.
Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.
As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.
Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 students (or equivalent) studying, or with a possible interest in studying, Modern Languages and related disciplines.
Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider questions they have about studying Languages and working in Translation.
