International languages



By studying international languages, you’ll develop a systematic understanding of the international forces shaping community life, government and business in the world today. Make the most of the international study experiences we offer and gain language skills and cross-cultural experience by studying in Australia and taking part in study and/or internships in another country.

There is a big difference between learning about a country and its languages and experiencing it for yourself.
