The sixth major National Network for Interpreting (NNI) and Routes into Languages collaborative event took place in Leeds on 20 February 2013. The purpose of the day was to raise awareness of the range of varied and exciting career opportunities open to linguists, especially in interpreting and translation domains, and to inspire young people to continue studying languages at all levels.
About 150 Leeds and regional university students attended the event. The feedback was very rewarding. Participants commented that the event was a real eye-opener for them in terms of interesting career opportunities. They were particularly reassured by the career paths of the alumni.
