AUT Government Partnership Graduate Certificate in Arts (Interpreting) Scholarship


Closing date:
16/02/2019
Value of Award:
Full tuition fees, student levies
No. of awards:
Up to six in 2018
Tenure:
Each scholarship will consist of full tuition fees and student levies (domestic fee equivalent) for the four papers comprising the Graduate Certificate in Arts in Interpreting. It is expected that successful applicants will complete the Graduate Certificate in Arts in Interpreting within one year of award. This may be completed either in Semester 1 full-time, commencing in late February, or spread over two semesters part-time.

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is leading a cross-government initiative called the Language Assistance Services Project to improve access to publicly-funded language assistance services (such as interpreting and translation) for people with limited or no English language proficiency. This initiative seeks to: – improve the quality, consistency and coordination of language assistance services provided across the New Zealand public sector; – provide equitable access to public services for those with limited English language proficiency; and – future-proof New Zealand’s public services to serve an increasingly culturally and linguistically diverse population.  A new model to deliver language assistance services across government will be implemented. This will include standards, certification and professional development requirements for interpreters and translators working in the public sector to increase the quality of interpreting services provided.   This initiative has a particular focus on increasing the pool and competence of rare language interpreters, including those working in specialised areas such as legal and health interpreting, to cater for New Zealand’s evolving language needs.

Auckland University of Technology (AUT) in partnership with MBIE and the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) will provide scholarships to assist speakers of identified rare languages to enrol in and complete the Graduate Certificate in Arts in Interpreting at AUT and to enhance their career opportunities whilst also fulfilling interpretation needs for the government sector.     This programme provides participants with the opportunity to gain an important entry level qualification in interpreting and is currently geared towards those speakers of rare languages such as former refugees and migrants wishing to embark on a formal interpreting career.

History or background of award

An MA Scholarship is available for a thesis in the 2019 academic year, associated with the ‘Big Data Approach to the Problem of Electoral Turnout’, a Marsden-funded research project, under the supervision of Professor Jack Vowles. Taking a ‘big data’ approach, using marked electoral rolls indicating whether or not the 30,000 people sampled cast a vote, this research maps and seeks to explain stability and change in voting and not voting over two general elections and two local elections. The proposed research will analyse movement between the general and Māori rolls during 2018, using both the matched sample and the entire rolls before and after the change.

Applications are sought from those who are eligible at the time of application, or who will have become eligible at the start of Trimester 2 the following year, to enrol for a Master’s degree by thesis worth 90 points or more. This will either be Part 2 of a two-year, 180 point Master of Political Science (MPols) degree (course code POLS595, 90 points) or a 120 point Master of Arts (MA) thesis in Political Science (course code POLS591).

Selection criteria

* Applicants would normally be expected to have completed a Bachelor’s degree or Honours or Master’s degree Part 1 in political science or an appropriate social science subject demonstrating academic achievement equivalent to a First-Class Honours degree from a New Zealand University.
* Applicants undertaking a 180-point Master’s degree may be eligible for this scholarship provided that they conduct the research under POLS595 (as a 90-point thesis).
* Scholarships will be awarded solely on the basis of academic merit.
* The research will require a willingness to engage with and analyse data, using various methods of quantitative analysis and experience in using statistical methods will be an advantage.
