Conference Interpreting is one of three specialisations within the MA Degree Programme in Applied Linguistics and is designed for all graduates interested in becoming professional conference interpreters. Our programme provides the tools and academic skills you need to compete – and remain competitive – in the challenging field of multilingual communication. You will learn to interpret at a professional level by:
• analysing language transfer problems
• developing solutions and strategies
• applying appropriate methods and tools

Your professional future

In our globalised world, multilingualism plays an increasingly important role. As a result, experts in multilingual communication are indispensable and so are qualified conference interpreters. Professional conference interpreters work:
• for government offices
• for national and international parliaments and organisations
• in private industry and business
• for trade unions, political parties, professional associations, etc.

Your MA programme

Apart from background studies and theory-based courses in linguistics and translation studies, the programme includes practice-oriented courses in:
• simultaneous and consecutive interpreting
• note-taking, memory training, public speaking and voice training
• terminology management
• professional skills

You have the opportunity to gain a direct insight into professional practice by:
• visiting potential clients / employers
• interpreting at simulated conferences
• practising in “dummy booths” at conferences
• interpreting in real-life settings

Our international team of lecturers are recognised experts from the academic world and/or professional practice. Our low teacher-student ratio in taught classes allows us to pay close attention to individual needs.
