Take your career as an interpreter to the next level!

This nationally recognised qualification offers the advanced skills and knowledge required to interpret from a source language to a target language in complex dialogue and monologue settings where the setting, situation, participants or number of parties involved can be challenging to manage and require high levels of accuracy and accountability. 

You'll gain advanced skills in retention and recall, preparing you for work in all community, business and diplomatic domains, enabling you to interpret content that may not easily be predicted or planned for or that may require a high level of subject knowledge, or intense assignment specific preparation. These domains may include government and international relations, health and welfare, policing and courts, formal immigration hearings, education, the media and commerce; as well as in professional sectors such as the law, technology and science, and assignments involving formality.
