Worldwide Translation and Interpretation Education

Universities Around the World Offering Translation and/or Interpreting Degrees and/or Education and/or Certificates

For Canadian universities only please click here.

Below is a list of universities, colleges and educational establishments around the world that offer education in translation and/or interpretation in order of country and then in alphabetical order. CTTIC has compiled this list from a non-exhaustive internet search made on May 3, 2023 plus some help from FIT colleagues around the world (thank you FIT!). Please be advised that some of the below information may not be up to date when you access it. Links to these institutions are provided with the caution that courses (and websites) come and go, so please do your own more detailed research using the names of the institutions listed. Some of them offer Bachelor’s degrees, others Master’s degrees, or both. A few only offer certificates in these professions. CTTIC makes no judgement as to the quality of the courses offered. Before you apply to any of these schools, please make sure it offers studies in your language combination(s) and in the field of translation or interpretation you are most interested in so that the studies you take are pertinent to your envisaged future professional field. Also please note that should you intend to work in the translation field with the view to becoming professionally certified through CTTIC, already possess a high level of talent for languages and wish to learn the skills and techniques involved in translation and interpretation, for practical reasons we suggest you study for a practical degree in translation or interpretation as opposed to a theoretical degree which is more geared to academic research.
