  • Qiliang CuiEmail author


The Master of Translation and Interpreting (MTI) was first offered by universities in China in 2007. By 2018, 249 universities in China were offering MTI degrees. The author of this paper conducted a survey of 205 universities offering MTI programs across the country. 592 questionnaires from MTI teachers were collected, 2849 questionnaires were from MTI students, and 522 questionnaires were from MTI graduates. Through the collation and analysis of the survey data, a comprehensive study of the current status of MTI education in China was conducted, issues were identified, and suggestions were put forward to address them.
