The university diploma (DU) Dialogues – Mediation, interpreting and migration:

  • provides knowledge in the social, health, asylum and legal fields
  • develops skills on professional posture and French level
  • explains how to use interculturality in the practice of interpreter mediator to resolve complex situations and misunderstandings (linguistic, cultural, religious, gender, representations, etc.).
The training is offered in partnership with the Lumière Lyon 2 University.
It lasts 10 months, from October to July.
There are 165 hours of lessons in total, 3 days per month (Friday - Saturday).
