Keep saying you want to learn another language? Now’s your chance.
We’ve reimagined the way we teach and expanded the parameters of the classroom. From 2018, you can travel overseas and learn another language with an intensive in-country unit as part of the new Open Learning Environment (OLE).

Take the first step in your study of languages or choose the units as an introduction to another culture-they’re open to all commencing undergraduate students. Please refer to your Faculty to ensure enrolment eligibility.

Along with 6 credit points toward your degree, you’ll gain unique, first-hand experiences in country through a combination of formal language classes and cultural activities – including visits to museums, theatres, memorial sites – and enhance your cross-cultural skills.

While open to students at all language levels, the OLE in-country units are best suited for beginners with no prior knowledge. Please note that the OLE units are not counted towards your major. We strongly encourage you to venture into new language experiences to expand your linguistic and cultural horizons.
