150 Point Program
Duration: 1.5 years full time
- eight compulsory subjects (100 points)
- core subjects (25 points)
- elective subjects (25 points)
All students are required to complete one of the Capstone Requirements for the program (25 points).
Capstone Stream 1: TRAN90010 Translation Internship
Purpose: Translation Internship is a 25-point subject where participants are placed in a professional translation environment. They will work on individual and team-based translation projects that require them to integrate their linguistic, technical and collaborative skills, and to experience the variety of roles in professional translation such as commissioner, editor and reviser.
Capstone Stream 2: TRAN90022 Translation Industry Project (12.5 points) and TRAN90021 Translation and Communication (12.5 points)
Purpose: To enhance career-readiness and employability by equipping students with the ability to apply theory to practice. Whereas “Translation and Communication” addresses the issue of translators and interpreters being intercultural fascinators and mediators in a workplace, “Translation Industry Project” offers students an opportunity to undertake real-life translation projects assigned by industry partners.
