Studying the acquisition, understanding and production of language.

A mature language user has a vocabulary of about thirty to forty thousand words. Speech is produced at a speed of three to five words per second. How is it possible that, in such an amazingly short period of time, you can select the correct words, put them in the correct order and grammatical form, and pronounce them intelligibly? The acquisition and comprehension of language are based on extremely complex cognitive processes which are not yet entirely understood. It’s these processes, and their biological underpinnings, that form psycholinguistics’ field of study and are the basis of this specialisation.

A large majority of our graduates gain a PhD position, while other graduates find jobs in the commercial sector or at research institutes. Graduates of this specialisation can find a position with one of the psycholinguistic research institutes, a government institution or for example, in the care sector (rehabilitation centres) or in education (language disorders).

You'll develop the ability to analyse complex situations and plan appropriate actions. You'll be introduced to research and inquiry methods, and carry out your own practical research. Throughout your studies, you'll gain an in-depth understanding of the key ideas, principles and fundamental values relating to this area of psychology.

In the first year of your MAppPsy(Com) studies, you'll gain experience in human and social services by completing a programme evaluation for a service provider. In the second year, you'll gain this experience by working with a relevant community organisation or organisations.

The MAppPsy(Com) also provides a pathway into the Postgraduate Diploma in the Practice of Psychology (Community Psychology). This is a one year work-based programme accredited by the New Zealand Psychologists Board, which enables graduates to become registered as psychologists in New Zealand.

Course structure

Students in the MAppPsy(Com) must pass the equivalent of 240 points at 500 level.

Although the regulations offer students the option of a 60-point dissertation, in practice students are strongly encouraged to take either the 90 or 120-point option.

Up to 120 points of the MAppPsy may be waived for students who have already completed four-year degrees (for example, an honours degree or other four-year undergraduate degree) provided that:

  • No required papers are waived, unless the student has already taken these papers (or equivalent papers) in their fourth year of study, and

Tourism has developed into one of the prime industries in the global economy. According to the World Travel & Tourist Council, the tourism sector supports 1 in 10 jobs on the planet.

Travel agencies, governments, heritage centers and publishers are increasingly looking for academically trained professionals who can creatively and critically reflect on tourism as a cultural phenomenon, and who are capable of nourishing the cultural interests of tourists with enticing ideas and well-informed stories.

Become an expert in cultural tourism

There is a growing need, both among young adults and older generations, to include new types of travel experiences in mass tourism. For example a journey in the footsteps of Harry Potter or Marcel Proust. Or think of battlefield tourism or 'dark tourism' to former Nazi camps.

At the same time, traditional destinations for cultural tourism such as cathedrals, palaces, museums or ruins face the challenge to adapt to rising levels of education conflicting with shortening attention spans.

By combining historical, literary, art-historical and other disciplinary approaches, and by integrating academic research with practical challenges, this new Master’s specialisation will train you to become an academic expert in cultural tourism.

  • Well-established contacts with leading players in the field of cultural tourism, which will help you to build up your professional network and to learn from state-of-the-art expertise
  • International field work, for instance at renowned academic institutes (such as the Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome)

Career prospects

As an academic expert in cultural tourism, you will be able to offer a creative, critical and well-informed contribution to the tourism industry and the cultural sector.

Depending on your own initiative and talents, this Master’s specialisation will help you to become (for example):

  • a publicist for a lifestyle magazine or the cultural appendix of a newspaper,
  • a policy maker at a municipality,
  • a communication or education officer at a museum,
  • a consultant for tourism companies,
  • an entrepreneur who develops new formats for city tours or B&B’s

The MA/Postgraduate Diploma in Conference Interpreting is designed to equip you with the knowledge and advanced interpreting skills required for a career in conference interpreting. Read more

The MA/Postgraduate Diploma in Conference Interpreting is designed to equip you with the knowledge and advanced interpreting skills required for a career in conference interpreting. All our interpreting trainers are practising conference interpreters in language combinations that reflect market demands. Most trainers are also AIIC members. For a detailed list of regular and visiting trainers and their professional backgrounds, please visit: http://www.alc.manchester.ac.uk/translation-and-intercultural-studies/about/people/external-trainers/

The programme offers simultaneous and consecutive interpreting training in five languages - French, German, Spanish, Russian and Chinese. These are key languages in international organisations such as the UN and EU and are also in demand on the freelance market.

The MA/Postgraduate Diploma in Conference Interpreting can be studied over one year (full-time) or two years (part-time). Part-time study is strongly supported and is actively facilitated in the timetabling of teaching hours for the MA, wherever possible.

Postgraduate Diploma   (PG Dip)

The Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) in Conference Interpreting is a slightly shorter course available for students who do not wish to complete a professional portfolio or research dissertation.

Two distinct conference interpreter profiles

As a prospective student, you will offer one of two profiles, reflecting the two distinct profiles of practising conference interpreters:

  • Profile 1: You have English as your native language (A language) and two passive foreign languages (C languages). You will be trained in consecutive and simultaneous interpreting out of both C languages into your A language
  • Profile 2: You have Russian, Chinese, French, German or Spanish as your native language (A language) and English as an active foreign language (B language) or English as your A language and one of the five languages mentioned as your B. You will be trained in both types of interpreting in both directions (i.e. B-A and A-B)

Why Manchester?

The University of Manchester's MA/PG Diploma in Conference Interpreting is designed to offer intensive training to enable students to develop the necessary skills for a career as a professional conference interpreter. Class sizes are kept small, to ensure that students can receive individualised feedback. This in turn enables students to progress at their own pace. Students develop their interpreting skills under the guidance of a core team of interpreter trainers - all of whom have worked for international organisations such as the EU or UN, either as staff or on a freelance basis. In addition, students attend professional skills master classes, in which visiting conference interpreters and potential employers offer insights into the profession.

We have two interpreting suites equipped with 12 booths and Brähler consoles used widely in the profession.

Internationally recognised

The course design reflects best practice criteria set out by the internationally recognised professional body for conference interpreters, AIIC (the International Association of Conference Interpreters). It includes a module specifically focused on professional development, allowing students to focus on the contexts in which they can expect to work as conference interpreters. To ensure that students have an understanding of the dynamics of interpreting in multilingual meetings, simulated conferences are run during the second semester, during which interpretation is provided from several languages. Students considering a career in research benefit from MACINT's location within the Centre for Translation and Intercultural Studies - with staff research interests ranging from translation and conflict to the interpreting profession.

We strive to keep our course up-to-date with the latest developments in the profession and to find ways to make our course as useful and relevant as possible. To that end in 2015 we introduced the following exciting changes:

Additional simultaneous training

We now offer a four-week advanced simultaneous training course to MA students following their final exams. The aim is to give students a further opportunity to bring the standard of their interpreting up to the level required of professional conference interpreters. After the training, students wishing to complete the MA will produce a piece of written work outlining their preparation for a hypothetical interpreting assignment. Students will be encouraged to pick a meeting for which webcasts and documentation are available online, prepare, and then test the effectiveness of their preparation by having a go interpreting from the webcast.

For an additional fee, PG Dip students and graduates from other universities can attend this extra training period if the relevant language groups are running.

Subject-specific training to enhance background knowledge

A new module was introduced to increase students' knowledge of subject-matter that they are likely to encounter as interpreters. This includes the workings of major international organisations (e.g. EU, UN), diplomacy, international law, economics and foreign policy.

Additional language

Students taking the postgraduate diploma will be offered an opportunity, as part of their course, to work on a new or existing language by enrolling on one of the university's language courses.

For recent updates on our activities please visit our Facebook page  or find us on Weibo.  

Aims

  • To equip students with the knowledge and advanced interpreting skills for a career in conference interpreting
  • To provide specialist training in consecutive and simultaneous interpreting
  • To provide a gradual transition into the professional world through practical, real-life interpreting tasks
  • To provide guidance on professional conduct and ethics
  • To enable students to reflect critically on their own and others' interpreting practice
  • To equip students for further study and research
  • For further information about the course, you can email  or  .

Master's specialisation in Europe: Borders, Identity and Governance

Rather than withering away under the impact of globalisation, borders have become privileged sites today for investigating the contemporary transformation of European governance, sovereignty, territory and identit(ies). The masters specialisation Europe: Borders, Identities and Governance will focus on b/ordering processes occurring within Europe’s internal cross-border regions (or Euregions), taking into account the context of shifts in state sovereignty, territoriality, and cultural identity in Europe’s borderlands. Courses within this program will also train attention on the external bordering dimension of the European Union (ie, Eastward Enlargement, European Neighbourhood Programme), while also addressing the EU’s search for a broader role in the world. Key themes raised in this master specialisation are e.g.: cross-border governance, transnational and multi-level governance, European citizenship and ‘cosmopolitical’ identit(ies), critical border geopolitics, biopolitical b/orderings and border securitisation, European post-colonial b/ordering and ‘othering’, and the search for an ‘ethical’ dimension to European borders.

See the website http://www.ru.nl/masters/ebig

Career prospects

The Master's specialisation Europe: Borders, Identities and Governance provides graduates entry into rapidly growing sectors of the job market, be it government, business or academia. Students will be able to apply the scientific insights and practical skills acquired to topics as varied as Europeanisation, internationalisation, borders, identities, cross-border governance and international cooperation and politics.

With expertise gained through this master a graduate may work for a local, provincial, or national (e.g. Foreign Affairs section) government, becoming responsible for, sharing expertise in and delivering advice on cross-border cooperation, international mobility, the attraction of international firms and investments, or the acquisition of European Union funds.

Another major category of employment may be found in the field of consultancy.As a consultant or advisor, a graduate may help promote the internationalisation of a city or region, or assist regional and city governments in obtaining and managing EU- funded projects.

The master is also very well suited as preparation for an international career. A graduate may find employment with the European parliament, European Commission or related institutions, or work as a programme officer with a European organisation or as an International/European affairs expert in a firm. Opportunities also abound within the rapidly growing job market for academic researchers and/or lecturers with one of the many Dutch or international research institutes and schools focusing on European issues.

Our approach to this field

The Master's "Europe: Borders, Identities and Governance" is an engaged and inspiring master that offers state-of-the-art knowledge and skills in the field of European studies. As the European Union is a construction of politically engaged human beings, we will focus on this construction process first and foremost. We will try to find answers to questions like: why do we wish to have a European Union and in what form then, where are the borders of the European Union, how do the policies of the European

Union affect our daily lives, our national identities and national borders and how do the policies of the European Union affect the people outside the European Union, that is the neighbour countries as well as countries further away. You will be taught by distinguished and internationally recognised professors who

study these issues and publish their findings in international academic journals and contribute to the public debate. Our goal is to help you gain up-to-date insights and exchange views on this important knowledge field in a spirit of curiosity, openness and thoughtfulness. You will study theories, methods and instruments, but above all you will develop a knowledge-seeking and critical attitude.

The Master's ‘Europe: Borders, Identities and Governance’ includes a variety of cases, individual and group assignments, international excursions, lectures and seminars. This unique programme gives you the opportunity to share experiences with other students and to link theory Europe: Borders, Identities and Governance with practice. You can select the elective courses that you find interesting and important and you can choose your own topic for your master thesis. Furthermore, we offer to find an exciting and

challenging national or international internship in the field of your own interest.

Cities face continuous processes of both expansion and transformation. Population growth and economic growth lead to expansion, while processes of obsolescence and decline lead to a demand for urban transformation projects. These processes usually require investments in land and property (re)development, while planning interventions provide guidelines to investors, sometimes as opportunities, but also as barriers to what an investor might see as a profitable investment.

The Master's specialisation in Planning, Land and Real Estate Development provides a land and real estate development perspective on urban development.

An intersecting perspective

The interaction between planning interventions on the one hand and land and real estate investments on the other hand is the central theme of this Master's specialisation.

Starting from the interaction between planning and real estate, you will develop your perspective on:

  • different planning instruments and their impact on land and real estate markets,
  • the dynamics of land and real estate markets, investment behaviour by private and public developers,
  • public private partnerships, land management strategies and value capturing mechanisms and
  • smart land and real estate investment strategies.

Develop your potential

Our Spatial Planning graduates are greatly valued by their employers for their analytical skills, critical perspective and sound academic understanding of the relationship between human activities, their spatial environment, and relevant spatial interventions enhancing their living environment.

Upon completion students will have knowledge of:

  • Interfaces between different planning concepts, sectors and interests
  • Synergies that are found and trade-offs that are made along these interfaces
  • Paths through which integrative planning is manifested in policy formulation, decision-making and projects at different geographical and institutional levels

Spatial planners from Nijmegen work as policy maker, consultant or project manager for government, consulting firms, project developers, housing corporations or research institutes. Also, more and more of our alumni are working in international projects.
