Course Summary

This is the only course in the UK that will give you advanced interpreting skills in all interpreting modes, including consecutive and simultaneous, chuchotage, sight translation, dialogue and distance interpreting. We’re the first university to teach remote and mobile interpreting based on research in distance interpreting, which will give you excellent and flexible career opportunities. We’re a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists, the Institute of Translation and Interpreting, the Translation Automation User Society and the European Language Industry Association, so you’ll benefit from excellent connections with future employers and interpreters’ work environments and be taught to industry standards. We offer two pathways on our MA Interpreting course: a multilingual pathway and a Chinese pathway. Experienced interpreters and academics will guide you through the main principles, techniques and professional requirements of interpreting. On the multilingual pathway we offer Arabic, French, German, Greek, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish paired with English (languages subject to teaching availability and or student demand). In your practice modules you’ll have opportunities for experiential learning and reflective analysis. Our simulations are joined by live guest speakers from various fields. You’ll also benefit from our cutting-edge facilities to practise each interpreting mode in the most realistic environment possible. In modules relating to the interpreting profession, you will gain the practical knowledge and organisational skills necessary to perform interpreting tasks effectively. The background lecture will provide you with a conceptual and methodological framework for analysing, discussing and justifying interpreting-related decisions.
