What Our Students Say About our
Course outline (Domestic)
Course Code: PSP60922
The interpreter requires advanced skills in retention and recall and may be required to switch modes. The Advanced Diploma of Interpreting prepares interpreters for work in all community, business and diplomatic domains, interpreting content that may not easily be predicted or planned for or that may require a high level of subject knowledge, or intense assignment specific preparation.
The community, business and diplomatic domains may include health and welfare, policing and courts, formal immigration hearings, education, the media, commerce, government and international relations, professional sectors such as the law, technology and science, and assignments involving formality, or participants with high status where the consequences of errors in communicative intent can have significant implications.
Interpreting in this setting typically requires high levels of accuracy and accountability. It is less likely there will be opportunities for error correction.
It is recommended that domestic students would meet one of below requirements:
