Description

This programme addresses a gap in the provision of professional accreditation of language related work, including oral interpretation and written translation, and the linked activities of language service management and bilingual professionalism. It is aimed at practicing linguists with experience across a range of sectors (commercial and public sector) who are holders of vocational qualifications and/or significant professional experience. It will provide an opportunity for you to undertake MA level study and professional development, while making use of your experience in a diverse and complex area of professional practice. It is currently the only professional practice degree in this area in the UK and will break new ground for the profession.

The programme has been designed to recognise previous professional learning, whether certificated or experiential in nature. To achieve this we have integrated into the design of the programme the following possible options to be included as APL as part of the Review of Learning module, which then lead to a research methods module and a final major project as indicated above:

IoLET Diploma in Translation (30 credits at Level 7 per unit);
IoLET Diploma in Public Service Interpreting Level 6 (30 credits);
Middlesex University Diploma in Interpreting Level 6 (30 credits).
Any student not successful in obtaining 80 credits RoL will be offered the opportunity to transfer on to an individually negotiated pathway, through the programme planning module WBS4810. This option will also cater for applicants who want to negotiate a specific learning pathway.
