Give yourself a professional edge by adding Italian or Spanish to your skill set. As an ACU graduate with fluency in an additional language, you will position yourself for success in today’s competitive global employment market. As well as language skills, you will have a deeper understanding of intercultural communication and possess the ability to interact and negotiate appropriately and respectfully across a range of cultures. ACU offers undergraduate students across all faculties the opportunity to complete a Diploma in Languages in conjunction with an ACU undergraduate degree so that you graduate with a bachelor degree and a diploma in the same timeframe. The course is part time, so you take one language unit in any study period. Units are offered in Summer Term, Semester 1 and Semester 2. The diploma is open to members of the university and to the community, and individual language units can also be taken on a non-award basis. The Diploma in Languages focuses on developing communicative language skills through active practice.
