Different courses cost wildly different amounts. Some charge different amounts to nationals, non-nationals and non-EU. It might be useful to have a list so the fees (and practices relating to them) can be compared.

In order to compare it would be good to have clear info on length of program (1 or 2 years) and either clearly stated per year cost or total cost to earn the MA degree.

I don't know how the website handles multiple users editing at the same time. Just in case, to avoid conflicts, it might be wise to make a note in the wiki (and save it, so others can see it) including date, time and screen-name before you start modifying entries, so we don't end up losing information.

IN NORTH AMERICA:

I received this link to the tuition page at Monterey, California (MIIS) via Twitter. It shows that tuition fees there are US$34,970 for the full year and US$17,485 per semester.

This is the information I have received about the Master of Conference Interpreting program in Toronto, Canada (Glendon College): The annual cost of the program for Canadian citizens or permanent residents is CAD$5,544.69 (roughly 4,200€). For international students, the fee is CAD$12,032.46 (about 9,100€).

The other two MA conference interpreting programs in North America are at Ottawa U and in Washington, DC. If anyone has information on their tuition fees, please add it here!

IN SPAIN:

I see the ULL and UAB have already posted their fees here. The other MA program in Spain, at ICADE (Comillas) costs 12,000€+, depending on your language combination.
