RMIT is endorsed by the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI) to offer up to 40 languages. These include:
- 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.
This diploma is flexible in its delivery and offers many opportunities for you to apply your knowledge and skills.
You will participate in learning activities including scenarios, case studies, role plays, online practice tools, group discussions and projects, practical demonstrations, reflective journals and simulations.
A range of learning activities help you achieve competency, including lectures, tutorials, online collaborations, peer workgroups and simulation sessions, as well as extensive practice materials. Assessment may include:
- assessment reports and reflective reports
- oral interviews and interpreting demonstrations
- class observation and peer review.
All practice materials and exams simulate the NAATI testing conditions to prepare students for their certification test.
Subjects are delivered in English, but some 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.
