It is also open to speakers of other languages than English and Chinese who have a high level of competence in both English and Chinese.  The MA combines the theoretical, technological and practical training necessary for effective translation between English and Chinese.

The degree aims to train students who already possess high-level English and Mandarin language skills to professional levels of competence in interpreting and translation. Graduates from the course will be capable of interpreting across a wide range of subjects involving dialogues at specialist consultations and presentations by consecutive mode. Subject to performance in Semester 1, students will have the practice in simultaneous interpreting. Graduates will be capable of translating across a wide range of subjects and have a sound conceptual understanding of the material being translated.
