Hi all!

I have applied for the PG Dip Conference Interpreting - Bidirectional (French A - English B) at the University of Leeds. As Heriot Watt University has just opened a new MSc Interpreting programme, I was also considering applying. But before I do so, I would like some feedback from people who studied there or know anything about the quality/reputation of the programme.

Any feedback or comment anyone?

Thanks in advance!

A lire : Choosing a school: what should I look for?

Tu peux ajouter deux questions :

  • Combien de personnes ont été diplômées avec ta combinaison durant les trois à cinq dernières années, et combien aujourd'hui sont interprètes de conférence, i.e. arrivent à vendre leur services et obtenir suffisamment de travail pour vivre de leur activité ?

  • A quelle région géographique te destine ta combinaison ? Tes premiers contacts dans la profession étant tes enseignants, il n'est pas trop mauvais de bénéficier de leur aide pour débuter dans la région... pourvu qu'elle y offre du travail.

Je miserais sur une formation à Paris, plus longue, donc plus complète, et une plus grande probabilité de devenir interprète, si on arrive à en sortir diplômé.
