Hi!

I am currently doing my PhD on simultaneous interpreting and in one of the parts I have to mention all the interpreting courses which are currently offered in Spain.

I know some of them, such as the Masters in La Laguna (Tenerife), Vic (Catalonia) and Cluny (Madrid) but as the syllabuses are changing in order to adapt to the European Framework, I would like to know if you know any other course.

Thanks a lot!

Madrid and Barcelona Aug 13, 2007

The offer in Madrid is wider than just Cluny: the Universidad Pontificia Comillas offers undergrad level studies, and it has offered a Masters degree in Conference Interpreting at some point, though I don't know if it is still available.

Also, the Universidad Europea de Madrid also provides interpreting studies, though I don't know what level.

As for Barcelona, I am pretty sure that the Pompeu i Fabra offers interpreting training.

Good luck!
Paula

Master on interpreting at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona) Aug 13, 2007

Hi!
There's an official master at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona fully adapted to the European Framework of Higher Education.
You can follow this link: http://www.upf.edu/postgrau/es/oficials/programes/comunicacio/traduccio/presentacio/ and read more info.
There are three options, one of them is interpreting and specialised translation.
I've just finished my degree in translation and interpreting at the UPF and I can tell you that interpreting teachers have a very good reputation.
The admission process is still open!

Good luck!

David

Granada and Malaga also Feb 15, 2008

Hi!

I have been researching on that subject lately, as I would like to follow some postgraduate courses on conference interpreting myself...

All I've heard is that sometime ago La Laguna was considered the 6th best place to study conf. interpreting in the world by the AIIC (2003?) and that also Comillas, Granada, Málaga and Vic have postgraduate courses on that issue.

By the way... could ayone recommend me one of them or give me some references...? I am really lost and prices and durations are completely different between them!

Any help!?

Thanks!

Thanks a lot! [/quote]
