Diploma in Modern Languages

This course enables students to communicate and to become proficient in one language (Chinese, French, German, Italian, Indonesian, Japanese, or Spanish) and culture. This gives graduates a competitive advantage in a variety of workplaces, whether in Australia or overseas. It is available as a stand-alone award or for students who are concurrently enrolled in a Bachelor course through UNE.

There is also a pathway for existing teachers with some prior knowledge of the language to use the Diploma to add a language as an additional teaching area. Qualified teachers wanting to add a language as an additional teaching area who need to commence at the beginner level should enroll in the Bachelor of Education (In-Service Conversion).
