Last week some students doing the BA in Applied Language and Translation Studies travelled to Brussels on a study trip to visit the European Parliament, the Commission and the Council.
They even met translators at the Directorate General for Translation, interpreters at the Directorate General for Interpretation, Irish MEPs and fellow students at KU Leuven.
"The Study Trip to the European Institutions in Brussels has been an amazing opportunity to get to know real translators and interpreters and see what the work looks like in practice. I feel way more encouraged to pursue a career in these fields now. Highly recommended!!
