Monash Translation and Interpreting Studies is delighted to announce they have just signed a MoU with the SPC, The Secretariat of the Pacific Community, which will give students of the MITS the possibility to undertake an international internship.
The SPC, based in Noumea, New Caledonia, is an international organisation founded in 1947 that works in public health, geoscience, agriculture, forestry, water resources, disaster management, fisheries, education, statistics, transport, energy, human rights, gender, youth and culture to help Pacific Island people achieve sustainable development.
As the official working languages of the organisation are English and French, the internship will provide Monash Translation and Interpreting students, working in the French-English pair, with the opportunity to work with the SPC’s in-house translators and conference interpreters and gain a unique experience of the work of an international body involved in regional aid.
