The overall aim of the program is to provide professional development and training in a discipline at an advanced level.
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.
