Designed for maximum flexibility, this program is made up of eight courses that can be studied in full-time intensive mode or part-time, often to complement additional studies.
The Diploma is offered in four main languages:
The one-year full-time intensive mode of the Diploma is ideal as a gap year 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. Intermediate-level learners may begin mid-year, subject to placement test results.
Languages offered in intensive full-time mode are Chinese and Japanese.
There is one core course – Intercultural Communication – delivered in English. This course is designed to equip you with the knowledge, skills and critical thinking to communicate, negotiate and continue to learn across diverse social and cultural settings and prepare you for work, study or research in intercultural environments.
The remaining seven language courses are electives, guiding you towards advanced language proficiency while developing your knowledge of related cultures and societies.
Students with no prior language skills will complete all seven 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 (in English) related to language and cross-cultural communication. Or students with prior studies may also learn additional languages as electives within the program.
In many cases, up to four of the eight courses in the Diploma can be cross-credited to both the Diploma and your main RMIT program. You can also fast-track this Diploma by undertaking spring and summer courses.
