Study a Language

All domestic students can now enrol in an undergraduate Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities. Subject to course availability, this additional program will generally add an extra year to studies, and students will graduate with a Diploma in Languages as well as their other degree. Please note that all language courses are held on campus (face to face) at Callaghan.

International students cannot enrol concurrently in the Diploma in Languages alongside their primary program unless they can complete both programs within the duration of their primary program CoE. For more information please contact the ESOS Student Compliance Unit ESOS@newcastle.edu.au.

Admission Requirements

Entry into the Graduate Certificate in Applied Finance (40 units) will be available for applicants who have: * 3 year Bachelors Degree not in the discipline; or * 3 year Diploma in the discipline; or * 3 year Diploma not in the discipline + 1 year relevant business experience; or * 2 year Diploma in the discipline + 2 years relevant business experience; or * 2 year Diploma not in the discipline + 3 years relevant business experience; or * At least 5 years business experience.

Students will be required to successfully complete a “Business Academic Skills Program” (BASP) which will be of 6 weeks duration. The BASP will be non-fee based and can be completed concurrently with courses in the Graduate Certificate.

Only after the successful completion of the Graduate Certificate and the academic skills program will students be eligible to formally enrol in the Masters Program. They will, however, receive 40 units credit by virtue of the studies they will have already completed. Therefore they will be required to do an additional 80 units to complete their Masters Degree.

International students will be supported by the University and the Newcastle Business School current support mechanisms. There will be a requirement for a minimum 6.5 IELTS result or equivalent. International applicants must also satisfy the University’s English Language Requirements.

Students from rural and isolated areas and those from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds will be supported through existing University support structures.
