- About this course
- The Diploma in Modern Languages is for undergraduate students at UWA who wish to study a language major alongside their current bachelor's degree. By enrolling in a diploma, students typically extend the overall time it takes to complete their studies by one year, which frees up space to concentrate on other things in their bachelor's degree.
Students in the Diploma in Modern Languages elect to study a major sequence in either Chinese (Mandarin), Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, French, Italian, German or Spanish.
Students in this course may apply to study some units of their course overseas. A Study Abroad or Student Exchange experience gives students the opportunity to immerse themselves in their chosen language, obtain first-hand experience of another culture and way of life, and meet new people and form friendships.
- In addition to the requirements of the concurrent undergraduate degree, students must complete units to a total value of 48 points.
