Guest lectures and visits
Talks by guest speakers are an integral part of the MSc Translating and Interpreting programme.
They cover a wide range of subject areas related to translating and interpreting, including academic, research and practical issues such as working as a freelance translator and setting up a translating business.
Mini-Conferences enable students to experience interpreting in a 'live' conference situation. Half of the students provide simultaneous and consecutive interpretation for speeches. The other half participate actively in the discussion in their mother tongue. In the second hour of the conference students change from being participants to working in the booth and vice-versa.
