Diploma of Languages

The Diploma of Languages will prepare you for the increasingly multilingual and international life of the 21st century. You will be taken on a language learning journey which is designed to engage you with the structural and grammatical components of the language. This is further enhanced by exploring the cultural, social and historical concepts, issues and topics of the language.

You can choose to study Ancient Greek, Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Persian, Sanskrit, Spanish, Thai, Urdu and Vietnamese as part of this Diploma. You can study the Diploma of Languages alongside a current undergraduate degree, but not as a standalone program unless you already have a degree.

This diploma will suit a wide range of students:

  • A bachelor student in a prescribed degree who wants to add a language.
  • A graduate who wants to learn a language to further their employment prospects.
  • A graduate who wants to learn a language, but not take on another full bachelors degree.

Entry into this program requires the completion of, or concurrent enrolment in, a program of at least a Bachelors degree at any Australian university or international equivalent.

This program can only be undertaken on a part-time basis. Students studying in Australia and holding an international student visa may be considered for the Diploma, however admission is on a case by case basis as it will require the student to increase their study load.
