Hi! My name is Paulina, I'm from Poland. In June I will graduate in Spanish Philology and I would like to continue my studies abroad(Master Degree). Could anybody recommend some good Universities or Institutions in Europe educating Interpreters (in Spanish, English or Italian)? I would be really grateful!

Are you interested in conference or community/public service interpreting?

If you want to be a conference interpreter, look at the AIIC website (www.aiic.net) for more information on the profession, schools, and training programs.

If you are from Poland and Polish is your best language, you are a Polish A and need to find a school that takes students with Polish A or is willing to open up a section for you. I know that Westminster in London does, and last I heard, the University of Lisbon does, too. There are a few programs in Poland as well but I am not familiar with them at all.

about Westminster Apr 21, 2011

If you are interested in Westminster, it would be better to ask them right away if they will offer Polish A any time soon, because they don't have Polish every year.

In Italy, a part from Trieste and Forlì, there's a university in Milan. The name keeps on changing, however it's a school for translators and interpreters.
That's the link:

http://www.fondazionemilano.eu/lingue/

The 3 first years are common to both translators and interpreters, then you can choose. For interpreting it's mainly focused on European institutions.
