ASU Signs aDouble-Degree MAProgramme Agreement onTraining Translators &Interpreters with anUzbek University

Yesterday, onApril9, Konstantin Markelov, the Acting Rector ofAstrakhan State University, met with Ganisher Rakhimov, the Rector ofthe Uzbekistan State University ofWorld Languages.

The parties outlined all the niceties and advantages of the double-degree MA programme on training English translators and interpreters.

"It will be a 2-year programme for a group of 10 students at most. Our teachers are supposed to visit ASU and yours will come to Uzbekistan. We will also apply online learning technologies." Konstantin Markelov supported Ganisher Rakhimov’s proposals. Besides, our Rector put forward an idea on the Uzbek university’s sending of its teachers to ASU together with the students who are supposed to take a 1-semester traineeship at ASU, so that the teachers could master efficient techniques and methods for teaching languages in full.

The guest liked the idea of such training which, according to him, will allow to train highly-skilled teachers that practice T & I themselves. The Rector of the Uzbek university also noted that it will be the programme of Astrakhan State University that will lay the foundation for the study course.

At the end of the meeting, the rectors of the two universities signed an agreement on a double-degree MA programme in translation and interpretation.
