Admission procedure

CIUTI mem­ber­ship is open to insti­tu­tions of higher edu­ca­tion offer­ing pro­grams in trans­la­tion, inter­pret­ing and mul­ti­lin­gual com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Mem­ber­ship is acquired through a pro­ce­dure involv­ing the qual­ity con­trol of cur­ricu­lum, research, infra­struc­ture and resources. The pro­ce­dure con­sists of four major stages which are out­lined below.


(1) An insti­tute presents its can­di­dacy by sub­mit­ting, via e-​mail, the appli­ca­tion form which can be down­loaded here. The can­di­dacy is then screened on com­pli­ance with the for­mal cri­te­ria laid down in the CIUTI pro­file. Suc­cess­ful can­di­dates will be invited to the sec­ond stage.


(2) Can­di­dates admit­ted to the sec­ond stage have to pay an admin­is­tra­tive admis­sion fee of 250 EUR. The can­di­date will be invited to draw up a Self-​Assessment Report accord­ing to CIUTI guide­lines. This SAR must be sub­mit­ted to the Sec­re­tary Gen­eral in elec­tronic form (via mail attach­ment). It will be for­warded to the mem­bers of the CIUTI Admis­sion Com­mis­sion and used as the basis for judg­ment. Can­di­dates whose SAR receives a pos­i­tive judg­ment will pro­ceed to the third stage.


(3) In the third stage, can­di­dates will be vis­ited by two CIUTI experts who will pro­ceed with an on-​site eval­u­a­tion of teach­ing, research, and facil­i­ties, and will attempt to resolve any out­stand­ing ques­tions raised by the Admis­sion Com­mis­sion. The expenses involved in the 3-​day visit (travel, meals, hotel accom­mo­da­tion) are to be cov­ered by the can­di­date. The Admis­sion Com­mis­sion makes its final judg­ment on the basis of the report of the experts, and presents suc­cess­ful can­di­dates to the Annual Gen­eral Assem­bly of CIUTI for approval.


(4) The final stage is the deci­sion of admit­tance or non-​admittance by the annual CIUTI Gen­eral Assembly.
