The ATC’s newly launched Collaborative MA Project Partnership Programme is a ground-breaking collaboration programme established with key university partners.
The programme expands on the ATC’s existing engagement with the academic community, initiating and supporting Master’s Dissertation projects that address questions relevant for the language services industry, set by the ATC.
Within the programme, outstanding Translation Studies and Applied Languages Master’s Degree students from partner universities have a unique opportunity to work together with the ATC on a collaborative project, and gain an insight into the language services industry.

The first cohort of students with an opportunity to work on a collaborative Master’s Dissertation project within the programme are starting their MA degrees in the autumn of 2020, and the results of the first collaborative projects are expected in the summer of 2021.
‘We’re absolutely delighted to launch the collaborative MA project programme with such a strong take-up from the academic community. Initiating and supporting research that makes sense for the language services industry and bridges the industry-academia divide is high on the ATC’s agenda. Through these collaborative MA projects, we are able to focus on topics that help us support our members better and serve to raise the profile of our industry,” says the ATC’s CEO Raisa McNab.
