Strategic Partnerships

One major ambition of ATS is to educate students in order to contribute to the country by fully utilising their translation and interpreting skills in the economic and social development. In order to prepare students with such skills to thrive in different scenarios, ATS is planning to develop partnerships with local government and business organisations to create internship and practicum opportunities. It is a mutually beneficial move, as it enables ATS students to contribute their capability as translators and interpreters in real-life settings while allowing them to further develop these skills.
