Conférence internationale permanente d'instituts universitaires de traducteurs et interprètes Excellence in T&I training and research

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.
