About Irish Sign Language/English Interpreting at Trinity College Dublin

The Diploma in Irish Sign Language/English Interpreting consists of a two-year full-time course which includes professional placement opportunities. It provides a full professional training for those who wish to work as Irish Sign Language/English interpreters. Central importance is given to the development of (i) proficiency in Irish Sign Language, and (ii) on interpreting skills. Other course modules deal with issues such as sign linguistics, bilingualism, the sociolinguistics of sign languages, Deaf people in society, ethics and professional practice.

Selection and assessment processes

Candidates will be selected by interview; criteria for selection will include proficiency in Irish Sign Language and likely capacity to satisfy the academic requirements of the course. The award of the diploma is based on continuous assessment of course modules, a practice study based on the placement, and final examinations in interpreting. A student whose teaching practice is considered unsatisfactory may, in exceptional circumstances, be allowed to undertake further practice.
