How many languages does AITI offer?

Can I undertake an AITI course while doing part-time job(s)

Yes, you can. Apart from the study hours, there is ample time for students to balance part-time work and social activities with their studies. Overseas students will, however, need to be aware of their visa requirements which may limit the amount of paid work per week. For qualified students who are limited by the amount of time they can spare, there are also part-time and weekend classes options.


Can AITI provide assistance if I have difficulties with my study or life?

AITI places much priority on students’ needs, offering a wide range of support services including study advice, psychological counselling, language assistance, health counselling, employment advice and visa guidance. Such support services will help students adapt to the new environment quickly so that they can smoothly complete their study in Australia.


What kind of qualifications do AITI teachers hold?

AITI has a high profile teaching team. Almost all of our translating and interpreting trainers hold NAATI Professional Translator and/or Interpreter accreditation (Level III ), and many hold PhDs or Master degrees. With many years of experience in teaching translation and interpretation as well as vast experience and knowledge gained in the workplace, they are amongst the best in the field.


Can AITI help me with accommodation?

AITI can advise students regarding accommodation and can assist students in making the choice that best suits their needs. AITI can also arrange temporary Home-Stay accommodation through a third party provider at the request of students.
