Notes

  • Chinese translation is only available to students of advanced Chinese language.

Description

Studies in Chinese translation provide a solid foundation in basic Chinese translation and interpreting skills but is not a professional qualification in this area.

Upon completion of the major, students are expected to have developed a good understanding of basic concepts of translation and interpreting, professional language skills in both written and verbal forms, through translation and cultural sensitivity and knowledge necessary for communicating in Chinese and English in professional contexts. Students will be in a strong position to pursue further studies that will lead to a professional qualification in translation and/or interpreting..

Right of school to determine entry level and approve accelerated enrolment

The Chinese program retains the right to determine the proper proficiency level for any particular student. Students are not permitted to accelerate their enrolment without first obtaining approval from the Chinese studies program.

Language Study Abroad program

Students can choose to study intensive in-country units at a host university in China over summer. The Chinese in-country program is only available on a fee-paying basis, however students may be eligible to apply for Monash Abroad Study grants. For a full list of units see ' Language Study Abroad units' below.
