Diploma in Languages graduates:
- Demonstrate a mastery of both oral/aural and writing/reading skills comparable to that of a student majoring in a language discipline;
- Possess a basic understanding of selected aspects of the culture (or cultures) and of the society (or societies) associated with the language;
- Communicate effectively in a variety of oral and written formats, and read, write, listen and speak another language with fluency and appreciate its cultural contexts.
The Diploma in Languages can be taken by students without previous language training, or by those seeking to develop existing language skills. Studying a language through the Diploma in Languages enables you to focus on your desired majors of study without missing out on the opportunity to improve your competitiveness in the international career market with a language qualification.
Alternatively, BA students can take a single language subject as part of their degree. Read more about study areas.
The following languages are offered through the DipLang and the BA:
- Ancient Greek
It is possible to commence the Diploma at various points within your Bachelor degree. However, it is strongly recommended that you commence your chosen language in the first semester of your Bachelor course and commence the Diploma at the start of your second year. This will provide the greatest flexibility in both meeting course requirements and controlling the duration of your studies.
