"In the past, PhD students were limited to their supervisor and to themselves, which in some cases led to anxiety issues and the abandonment of the degree. Today, PhD students begin their degree by attending seminars that offer consistent research training. In the case of the PhD in Translation studies the taught component is of particular importance, since it is composed of mandatory seminars, taught by lecturers from three of the best universities in this area, and optional seminars, which cater to the particular interests of doctoral candidates. Regarding the former, it is also worth mentioning that they provide opportunities to discuss theories and ideas, as well as to discuss individual research paths. Equally important is the opportunity to access the libraries and services of three universities. I waited two years for this degree to open and I strongly recommend it to anyone interested in literature, linguistics, cultural studies and, of course, translation."
