University Programmes

A Certificate, a Diploma or a Degree?

     Not everybody is gifted and quality in the industry of translation and interpreting is becoming crucial. Therefore, you need to be trained in order to be able to provide high-quality products which meet the standards and criteria in this field. Formal Degrees are becoming a requirement in the profession. In addition to the private training centers, a lot of higher education establishments worldwide have undertaken the mission of designing undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate programmes which purport the education of would-be translators and interpreters, either with research or professional objectives. 

     Underneath, you will find a list of the most prestigious institutes and universities in addition to a brief presentation of their curricula with links to their web pages.
