The Advanced Diploma of Interpreting (LOTE-English) creates a range of opportunities for you to apply your knowledge and skills.
This diploma is designed for people who have advanced bilingual skills to facilitate communication between speakers of different languages. You’ll gain advanced oral transfer skills for interpreting in specialised settings, use communication media in interpreting, and study and apply ethical principles in professional contexts.
You will attend weekly lectures and tutorials, as well as one-on-one practice sessions with your teacher. You will participate in learning activities including scenarios, case studies, role play (in dialogue, monologue and sight translation), online practice tools, group discussions and projects, practical demonstrations, reflective journals and simulations of real-life assignments.
RMIT is endorsed by NAATI to offer up to 40 languages, including:
- Chin (Haka, Tedim)
- Kurdish (Kurmanji, Sorani) and Kurdish Southern (Feyli)
Languages run each semester subject to interest and minimum numbers. If a language you wish to study is not running this semester, please submit an expression of interest.
Assessment may include written work, quizzes, presentations, interpreting demonstrations, and class observation and peer review.
Subjects are delivered in English. Some subjects may have bilingual activities and assessment tasks.
Learning at RMIT
The types of classes you have will depend on the course you’re studying. Classes are offered in various formats designed to provide meaningful engagement with staff, industry and peers and provide for access and use of spaces where learning can be applied and active, including an array of specialised equipment.
Most RMIT courses do not include passive large-scale classes such as lectures, instead the content traditionally provided in lectures is made available online. This may be in the form of readings, videos or other on-demand learning materials. This content will also support the basis of interactive learning that takes place in on-campus classes.
