Career and Industry

Language skills in Arabic, Chinese, Indonesian and Spanish are increasingly important in diplomacy, defence, security, commerce and trade-related fields; as well as for developing intercultural understanding and a global outlook.
These four languages are all strategic in terms of Australia's interests, and new opportunities are expected to emerge in the future in response to our ever-changing world.
