Your instructors are all qualified professionals. Your conference interpreting courses will be taught by working interpreters who are either Active members of AIIC or accredited by the leading institutional employers. Your court and healthcare interpreting instructors will either have achieved certification in their field, or – in some cases – will have helped to create it.
They will train you to enter an evolving job market. Your interpreting career path can take you to the corridors of power in Ottawa, or to important world cities beyond Canada’s borders. It may provide lucrative options to start your own business, and to use technology to reach around the world. It may allow you to safeguard people’s liberties, or even their very lives.
You’ll benefit from three types of environments. In Year One, your virtual classrooms will allow you to connect with classmates and teachers from around the world. In Year Two, you’ll have access to the state-of-the-art facilities at Glendon. Our campus is located in midtown Toronto’s affluent Lawrence Park neighbourhood, on a wooded ravine renowned for its natural beauty. Finally, work placements in both your first and second year of study will give you a chance to apply what you have learned to the real world
