Course Summary

Why study this course?

Get ready for a role as a professional interpreter in international organisations, the private market and public services operating under English law.

You can study this course in the following languages, all paired with English: Arabic, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

This course provides tuition in conference interpreting and public service interpreting (PSI) relating to English law. If you are solely interested in conference interpreting, our Conference Interpreting PG Dip or Conference Interpreting MA provide a dedicated conference interpreting training for the European Union and United Nations context. Instead, this course offers a public service interpreting (English law) module.
