This is a first-degree level qualification (NQF Level 6) in terms of language skills required for those interpreting in the UK in a Public Service context. A range of languages are covered and the course includes Law as a specialised Option.
The examination is held in June (the deadline for applications is 28 February) and consists of the following Modules:
• Interpreting using consecutive and whispered techniques
• Sight translation from and into English
• Written Translation from and into English
On successful completion you will be in a position to register with the National Register.
You will need a minimum of one A level or equivalent qualification in English and your target language. We also carry out our own assessment to make sure you can complete the course successfully.
You may not have to pay course fees - please see our financial support pages.
We were delighted that the QAA's Integrated Quality and Enhancement Review (IQER), carried out in January 2010 concluded that they had 'Confidence' (the highest judgement possible) in the quality of our Higher Education provision.
