We have recently completed a review of the concurrent Diploma in Languages and have made some changes to this program for students commencing in Semester 1, 2021.

Some of the changes were made to standardise aspects of UQ programs, including minimum requirements for the study of Level 3 courses.  Other changes were made to ensure that we have a sustainable suite of program, plan and course offerings.

When viewing the 2020 Diploma in Languages course list on the Programs and Courses website, you can change which year you are viewing using the dropdown box near the top right of the list to compare the 2021 DipLang with the pre-2021 program.

As a continuing student, your choice of Language Major will determine to what extent you are affected by these changes but please be assured that you will be able to complete the Major you have commenced.

We are here to help you plan your enrolment for 2021.
