ASTI has sustained an open-door policy since its creation. It is through cooperation that the School was set up and has continued to grow, notably with the collaboration of partners from Western Europe and North America.
The School has therefore kept good working relations with partner institutions, particularly in the areas of student and staff training, curriculum development as well as exchange of services and consultancy.
Training of students. ASTI students have the opportunity to spend six weeks on internship under the supervision of experienced professionals in accredited institutions in Cameroon or abroad. Partnerships include government ministries, state-owned and private enterprises, international institutions with organised translation and interpretation services.
The School also has long-standing relations with external partners, especially with renowned specialists in the Diaspora, for the co-supervision of M.A. dissertations and the exchange of experience in handling of certain courses and programmes.
Cameroonians seeking admission into ASTI must sit and pass a competitive entrance test which is organised once every year, before the beginning of each academic year. Foreign candidates are requested to submit their application files to the School for examination. Admission is highly selective and potential trainees are expected to have sound general knowledge and a mastery of their working languages.
