The course

If you want to focus on gaining practical skills in translation alongside fluency in French, German, Italian or Spanish, and you are also keen to engage with the field of Interational Film, this specially designed three-year degree programme is for you.

As a modern linguist, you will learn to speak and write fluently, developing excellent communication and research skills, and combine language proficiency with cross-cultural perspectives.

As a student of International Film, you will engage with films from different periods and cultural contexts, exploring key styles, movements and genres, important filmmakers and national cinemas. You will develop a creative and critical mind-set with excellent analytical abilities. 

As a part of Royal Holloway’s close-knit international community based on our beautiful historic campus, you will be within easy reach of London with its wealth of cultural resources.

    • Whether you are an advanced or native-speaker level student when you start, by the time you graduate you will be fluent in your chosen language, confident in reading, understanding and analysing text and able to write with ease and accuracy.
    • On graduation you will have learnt about theories and practices of translation and will have practised applying what you have learnt throughout your degree.
    • You will combine your linguistic competence with the capacity to think critically and creatively about international film, and will have a good grounding in the key styles, movements and genres.
    • Our research staff are engaged in research at the highest level internationally; we are in the top 10 of UK Modern Language departments for research quality and the top in London (Research Assessment Exercise 2014).
