This Interpreting and Translation course from University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) will prepare you for an exciting and rewarding career in the language services industry. It’s taught by high-level, experienced interpreters who are professionally active.
On this practical and varied course, we use a range of techniques to provide you with a learning experience which is both stimulating and professionally realistic (including our renowned multilingual mock conferences). Interpreter training takes place in one of our two conference interpreting suites; you’ll benefit from using two different simultaneous interpreting systems which are both commonly used at international conferences.
Why study with us
This course is enhanced by our longstanding links with the relevant professional bodies and language services providers both in the UK and abroad.
With 20+ hours of teaching per week (much more than many similar courses offered nationally), you’ll benefit from an intensive learning experience which equips you for seamless transition into the interpreting profession.
You’ll be taught by staff with extensive experience as professional interpreters. They draw on their experiences of interpreting and translating for international organisations, crime prevention agencies and large multinational companies.
This course will equip you with the advanced skills and knowledge you need to become a professional interpreter and/or translator.
These skills are in high demand and will enable you to pursue a successful career in the UK and overseas working for multinational corporations, local and national governments, educational institutions, language service providers and other organisations.
