School of Languages and Cultures
LEARN A LANGUAGE, BE INSPIRED
Studying languages gives you a competitive edge in any career. As a language graduate you will have qualities that set you apart – unique communications skills, cultural awareness and the ability to adapt to changing environments. Be it in business services, government or non-profit, these skills are valued by employers in every sector. Indeed, in every country. Overseas jobs and the chance to travel will beckon. Learning a language will alter the way you look at the world and make your life richer.
Why study at the School of Languages and Cultures?
We offer the widest range of language studies in Australia covering Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas. See the full list here. And we’re flexible – you can study your chosen language as part of a Bachelor’s degree or combined degree, with the option of Honours and postgraduate programs. Or you can add a language to any other degree with the Diploma of Language Studies, which is also offered in an accelerated mode. Whether you are just starting as a University student or looking to expand your professional career, we can help you discover the joys of learning a language.
