Introduction of Graduate School of Translation & Interpretation

The Graduate School of Translation and Interpretation (GSTI) of Beijing Foreign Studies University is one of the leading institutions in the training of top-notch interpreters and translators in China.

It has produced over 1700 graduates who are now working for UN organizations, Chinese government offices, mass media, the banking sector, higher education institutions and multinational corporations. Apart from the students it enrolls from China’s mainland, GSTI also hosts students from EU countries, the USA, Canada, Australia, Singapore, South Korea, and Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. The school has extensive academic links with universities in the United States, EU countries, Australia, Southeast Asia and Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.
