Do you have a passion for languages and a heart for challenges? Have you ever considered becoming a conference interpreter?
Are you curious about life as a professional interpreter? Would you like to know more about conference interpreter training? If you answered “yes” to these questions, then please join us for an interactive afternoon organised by MA Conference Interpreting (MACINT) at the University of Manchester. You will get to know what it takes to be a conference interpreter and what an interpreting course looks like. You will be able to meet with a former staff interpreter from the European Commission and talk to MACINT trainers and students. Better still, you will have a chance to “interpret” in the booth and to experience the adrenaline yourself!
