What will you study on the Diploma in Legal Interpreting?
The Diploma in Legal Interpreting consists of two modules:
DPSI: Foundations (15 credits)
This module is designed for those new to the discipline of interpreting and translation. It is a spring term module and runs from January to June each year.
DPSI: Legal Specialisation (30 credits)
This module builds on the foundations laid in the Foundations module and teaches you the skills you need to work as a medical interpreter. The module runs from October to April/May. In addition to preparing you to graduate with an undergraduate level interpreting and translation qualification, the module prepares you for the Chartered Institute of Linguists Educational Trust Diploma in Public Service Interpreting, legal option.
Those with 100 hours of accredited interpreting experience, the Level 3 Certificate in Community Interpreting or an academic background in languages can apply to be considered for direct entry into the Legal Specialisation module.
