European Masters in Conference Interpreting

Welcome to the European Masters in Conference Interpreting website!

This website provides information on conference interpreting training at advanced (postgraduate) level provided by a consortium of European universities in collaboration with the European Commission and the European Parliament. You will find information on the core curriculum, admissions procedures, as well as pedagogical resources and further information on the consortium which will be of interest to students, institutions of higher education in the process of setting up new interpreting training programmes, and to employers of conference interpreters.

The EMCI programme is designed for students with European and non-European languages. The member institutions pursue a common policy on student recruitment and assessment and are committed to quality maintenance and regular reviews of the programme to adapt to changing needs and new developments. If you wish to become a student in an EMCI member university, please consult the Frequently Asked Questions.

 The EMCI Consortium underwent a complete reform in 2011-12 and became the EMCI Consortium II. Current members are listed on this home page and committee members are listed on the Members' page. To learn more about the history of the Consortium, please consult the Preamble to the Core Curriculum. To learn more about the new Consortium, please consult the Statutes.
