Students should ensure they review the Course Structure information provided on the Course Details page for their Bachelor’s Degree. It is essential that students complete any Foundation units identified in that information at the earliest available opportunity in their studies. For those degrees which do not identify any Foundation Units, the necessary fundamental knowledge is incorporated within each degree specific major in your course. Where Foundation units are identified, they are essential and are chosen to provide fundamental knowledge which will assist you throughout the remainder of your studies. In some cases these foundation units are also essential prerequisites to enable you to undertake required units within your chosen majors, so these units should always be completed as early as possible in your course.

Students can access specific major pages through the handbook search function.

Course overview

Description
The combined Bachelor of Modern Languages (BModLang) and Bachelor of Business (BBus) enables students to develop relevant, practical skills across a range of business areas, as well as high levels of competency in one language and functional levels of competency in a second language. This combination will provide students with the practical and transferable skills that employers are seeking, giving them an immediate competitive edge in the employment market and preparing them for work with global organisations. Combining the BModLang and the BBus provides the opportunity for high achieving students with specific interests and strengths in both languages and Business to achieve both a BModLang and a BBus within a four year study period.
