Designed for maximum flexibility, this program consists of eight courses.
The Diploma is offered in four main languages:
A one year full-time intensive mode of the Diploma is an ideal program as a gap year and/or a pathway into another higher education program. In some cases it is the equivalent of a language major and is appropriate for both beginners and those with some basic knowledge of the language. Languages offered in intensive full-time mode are Chinese and Japanese.
There are 2 core courses, delivered in English, that deal with:
- the organisational management of linguistic and cultural issues
- the socio-linguistic and political aspects of language use
- language policy and planning.
The remaining 6 language courses are electives, guiding you towards advanced language proficiency while developing your knowledge of associated cultures and societies.
Students with no prior language skills will complete all 6 courses in the same language.
Students with prior studies in the languages above have the option of combining the language courses with a range of electives related to language and cross-cultural communication. Students with prior studies may also learn additional languages as electives within the program.
In many cases, up to 4 of the 8 courses in the Diploma can be cross-credited to both the Diploma and your main RMIT study program. You can also fast track this Diploma by doing spring and summer courses.
Plans are variations offered for a program such as specialisations, modes of delivery or location. Browse a plan to see the courses our students are currently studying.
