Why study the Master of Arts in Chinese Translation and Interpreting?

Arts in Chinese Translation and Interpreting is a suite of programs including a Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma, Masters and Masters (Advanced) qualification, designed to develop students' practical techniques and skills of translation between English and Chinese and interpreting between English and Mandarin. It seeks to help them obtain an understanding of theories and professional aspects of translation and interpreting and to apply them in translation and interpreting practice. Emphasis will be placed on professional translation and interpreting.

Students who proceed to complete the Masters program will be qualified up to the first professional level specified by NAATI (formerly known as level 3). They will be trained in different areas including society, business and trade, law, science and technology, politics and international relations, and will be expected to satisfactorily perform as professionals in related translation and interpreting situations.

There are limited places available each semester and entry into the program is very competitive. Early applications are strongly encouraged.
