I used the 'Study Across the Pond' service to help me apply for my Journalism MA in the UK. I remember asking over and over again if there was a fee to pay because I couldn't believe such great service was free of charge. From the very start, my adviser was there to guide me. He helped me explore program options all over the UK. When I decided on a few, he helped me prepare my application for each school and went through it to make sure it was accurate. Then after receiving my offers and choosing a school, my adviser helped with my student visa application, residence application, and even suggested a few places to check out in the UK when I'm there! He answered any questions I had via email within 24 hours or on Skype. I would recommend this service to anyone interested in an education in the UK. I fly to London in less than a week to start my MA and that wouldn't have been the case without the help of my great adviser!
I did my MA in Translation Studies at Cardiff University in 2015-2016, and my only regret was that I couldn’t continue studying for longer. I wholeheartedly enjoyed the whole course. My tutors were approachable and had a great deal of academic and professional experience.
The other students on the course came from a wide range of backgrounds and class discussions were very engaging. I personally felt that the course was a great balance between the practical skills and advice needed to find employment after graduation and the theoretical underpinnings which would help us to translate confidently.
I strongly recommend this course to students who are interested in becoming professional translators.
