Court and public service interpreting for Albanian, Arabic, Dari/Farsi or Turkish in combination with German

Since November 2016, the University of Vienna has been offering a continuing education course in court and public service interpreting. The course lasts 2 semesters (full-time with compulsory class attendance on Fridays and Saturdays) and is equivalent to 60 ECTS credits.

In 2018, the University began offering a master’s programme (90 ECTS credits). The master’s programme consists of the continuing education course combined with a master’s upgrade. Only graduates of the continuing education course who also hold another recognised university degree can be admitted to the master’s upgrade.

Both programmes are intended for people already working or wishing to work as interpreters and translators in the judicial field, for the police and asylum authorities, in the fields of healthcare and education, and for social institutions.
