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.

2. What does this mean for me as a continuing student?

Students commencing the Diploma in Languages in 2021 will be required to follow the new program structure, rules and course list.

Students continuing in the Diploma in Languages will be able to complete their program as planned, even if their Major (e.g. Classical Languages) is no longer available to commencing students. There will be changes to the course offerings available in some Majors, but alternatives for completion of the plan will be provided. Students will also be able to change to one of the new majors (e.g. French Advanced) if the courses they have completed appear on the 2021 Major course list.
