Faculty of Arts to start the first Post-Graduate Diploma in Interpreting as from October 2005 The Faculty of Arts has embarked on a new project that of offering an evening full-time post-graduate diploma in interpreting. Six interpreting booths will soon be installed at the Faculty financed under the EU Transition Facility Funds. SCIC – DG Interpreting [Commission] and the Parliament will be sending over to Malta experienced interpreters to help in the running of the course. SCIC has already sent two experts for a Training the Trainers seminar held in September for Maltese lecturers and another expert for the aptitude tests to recruit possible future Maltese interpreters. The course Director, Prof Joseph Eynaud, has signed an agreement with the French Embassy who will be financing an In-service course for lecturers responsible for the diploma courses in translation and interpreting. The course will be organised by the University of Strasbourg. The Maltese booth has now four new Maltese interpreters who graduated at the University of Westminster and have passed recruitment tests in Brussels.
