Study a Diploma in Languages

Few skills are as translatable across industries and nations as speaking a second language.

With a Diploma in Languages, you will learn to read, write and speak one or more languages from a choice of French, German, Japanese, Chinese and Australian Sign Language (Auslan).

More than just gaining proficiency in a Language Other Than English (LOTE), you will also gain a better understanding of another culture.

The Diploma is available for all Commonwealth Supported students and must be studied concurrently with your your degree program – and yes, there are opportunities to study overseas and improve your language in the relevant country.
