I am from Ireland and am currently doing a BA in Asian Studies, focusing on Korean Studies. I am studying the culture and language of Korea and I will be studying in South Korea for a year. Will this qualify me to be an interpreter\translator in South Korea or will I need further qualifications?

Interpreting, may it be liaison, business or conference, requires more than just to speak two languages. That knowledge is best acquired by following a course in interpreting at postgraduate level.

You will need a degree or certificate in Conference Interpretation in English<>Korean. I have heard good things about the program in South Korea.
