Concurrent Diploma in Languages
Introduced in 2010, the Diploma in Languages allows UQ students to pursue language studies, either for personal interest or to enhance their career prospects, concurrently with their bachelors degree.
This program will suit students who studied a language at high school and who want to maintain their proficiency. It may also interest students who have not previously studied a foreign language and students enrolled in a degree that does not allow a language.
The Diploma in Languages is equal to a major (16 units / 8 courses) in the language. Students studying the Diploma would generally spread the study of a language across the duration of the bacherlors degree (3 years) but you can take longer.
Students who complete the Concurrent Diploma in Languages will earn a separate award.
The Concurrent Diploma in Languages is available in Chinese, French, German, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Russian and Spanish.
