The academic calendar 2020-2021 was approved by the University of Salamanca governing board on the 27th of May 2020, and it is probable that the calendar for 2021-22 will be approved around the same time this year. Once the calendar for 2021-22 has been approved, the Masters degree in Translation and Intercultural Mediation will publish the official calendar with the session start date, the dates for teaching periods and for holidays.
During the academic session 2020-21, ‘safe in-person teaching’ (presencialidad segura) is being applied. We are respecting social distancing in classrooms, hand hygiene and surface hygiene rules as well as safe routes in the public spaces in the Translation and Documentation Faculty of the University of Salamanca. In classrooms, teaching is being done relatively normally and students in isolation (positive, direct contact or with medical certification of other illnesses) can follow the class simultaneously via videolink. In Salamanca, we have not been put back into lockdown since the de-escalation in May 2020.
During this year of ‘safe in-person teaching’ (presencialidad segura), we are preparing a high number of academic and professional activities in an audiovisual format, including additional training for Masters dissertations (TFM), a complete series of academic conferences (6), various extracurricular training workshops (CAT tools, audiovisual translation) and a series of professional training activities (in the week of the 12-16th April)
The plan for the 2021-22 academic session is that classes will begin in the middle of September with ‘safe in-person teaching’ with hygiene measures and social distancing in place, just like the current situation. In 2021-22 we will offer a complete programme of academic and professional activities, practical and formative workshops for employability. On the following dates, virtual information meetings about our courses will take place:
- METS – Friday, 19th February (in the morning)
- MATEM – double Masters with the University of Heidelberg – Thursday, 15th April at 6pm
- University Masters in Translation and Intercultural Mediation (MUTMI) – Monday, 20th April at 6pm
