These programs are ideal for professional interpreters who are already actively working in the field, or for those looking to further their skills, and widen their work opportunities in legal and medical interpretation settings.
Conference interpreters earn significantly higher rates compared to community, legal or medical interpreters. Typical daily rates range from $800.00 – $1,200.00. Conference interpreters are required world-wide by heads of state, delegations, business groups, universities, focus groups, etc., to provide long-consecutive and/or simultaneous interpretation.
York University’s Glendon College offers a 2 year Master’s program, complete with language-specific education and practice, professors who are members of AIIC or accredited conference interpreters from world-renowned international institutions, guest professors for targeted practice, and internship opportunities.
MCIS graduates can apply for exemption of the first year of Glendon’s two-year graduate program (pending approval from the university and passing a transition exam).

Through Humber’s PLAR process (Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition), MCIS graduates can submit an MCIS-issued transcript with a completed PLAR application to Humber College. MCIS grads will be exempt from LITC 101, 102, 103 and 105. The cost of the application is $200 payable to Humber College, which covers the complete assessment of an MCIS transcript for exemption. Successful applicants can subsequently enrol in the remaining two courses: LITC104 (Simultaneous Interpreting) and LITC106 (Capstone Skills Integration). Upon successful course completion, they will be eligible to receive the LITC certificate from Humber College.
