FAST-PACED WORK THAT WILL MAKE YOU A LIFE-LONG LEARNER. You’re a diplomat negotiating a ceasefire in an international conflict. Human lives hang in the balance. But as the party on the other side of the table begins to speak, you don’t understand a word they are saying! What do you do? You keep calm, because you know that professional conference interpreters are on the job.

Conference interpreters build bridges across languages and cultures. They have privileged access to the corridors of power, and they are witnesses to history in the making. They work behind the scenes, helping economic, social and political realities to unfold.

Sound like the job for you? The Master of Conference Interpreting can teach you what you need to know. 

At Glendon, we train tomorrow’s conference interpreters. We use technology to reach out to the best students and teachers around the world. Our students learn to work in both conventional, face-to-face environments, and in cyberspace, using the latest online platforms to interpret at a distance.

We will prepare you for a globalized world. One where quality in multilingual communication is, more than ever, a necessity. The United Nations, the European Union and all the main international organizations require highly qualified professionals to bring immediate understanding amongst the leaders of the world. So do the big corporations, social movements and NGOs whose activities reach beyond borders and languages.

Our teachers are all minted professionals and experienced trainers, working currently for international organizations and in the private market. They are accredited with the UN, the EU, Government of Canada, or other important institutions. Our graduates work as staff or free-lance professionals both in Canada and in other countries, such as France, China, Brazil, and Nicaragua.
