Application, selection procedure & fees

In order to qualify for EUMASLI 2.0 you need to have (a) a first university degree (or equivalent), (b) at least three years of professional experience as a sign language interpreter, and (c) sufficient competence in English for taking part in a Master programme of this kind. If you meet these criteria and want to apply to take part in the programme, do as follows:

On the basis of your application, there will be a selection procedure. This will involve (a) writing an essay on a question related to sign language interpreting in English (60 min), (b) being interviewed in spoken English (20 min), (c) being interviewed in an appropriate sign language (20 min). In the case of Deaf applicants, (b) and (c) will be merged into one sign language interview. To take part in the selection procedure, you will have to come to the relevant partner university for one day in May 2011. You will be notified about the outcome of the selection procedure by June 2011. If you have applied to Humak University but did not secure a place there, you may still be considered for one of the partner universities.

Though this is a joint European programme, it was not possible to harmonize national conditions as to financing the programme. So, fees depend on where you will be registered:
