The Centre for Translation Studies (CTS) at Surrey is a research centre that focuses on postgraduate course provision.

Founded in 1982, well before the late 1990s boom of Translation Studies in the UK, the centre has a long tradition in research and research-led teaching. Current provision includes business-economics, scientific-technical translation and translation technology as well as different modalities of translation, namely, audiovisual translation (subtitling and audio description) and interpreting. The centre can provide training in 13 languages all of which are paired with English. Greek features prominently in every year's cohort as a preferred language for subtitling, translation and interpreting across a range of one-year MA programmes. Most Greek graduates pursue a career as subtitlers, translators, project co-ordinators/managers, translation checkers and quality assurance localizers. Some students also continue their studies at PhD level. Relevant information can be found at:

King's College London

Department of Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies

Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies at King's go back to 1919, when the Koraes Chair was inaugurated. Its first holder was A.J. Toynbee (1889-1975). The Department began to expand in the 1970s, with the establishment of a full undergraduate programme in Modern Greek Language and Literature (now Modern Greek Studies) in 1974, of the MA degree in Late Antique & Byzantine Studies in 1984, and of the MA degree in Modern Greek Studies in 1990. The Department is now the largest of its kind in Britain, and has a long and distinguished tradition of scholarship in the fields of Modern Greek and Byzantine history, language and literature. The Department has six full-time members of academic staff and about forty students, more than half of them engaged in postgraduate study. The Department cooperates closely with the Centre for Hellenic Studies in the College, as well as with academic colleagues in Greece and elsewhere, who frequently visit King's to give lectures and seminars.
