Why study the Diploma in Modern Languages at UNE? This course enables students to communicate and to become proficient in one language (Chinese, French, German, Italian, Indonesian, Japanese or Spanish) and culture. This gives graduates a competitive advantage in a variety of workplaces, whether in Australia or overseas. It is available as a stand-alone award or for students who are concurrently enrolled in a Bachelor course through UNE. There is also a pathway for existing teachers with some prior knowledge of the language to use the Diploma to add a language as an additional teaching area. Qualified teachers wanting to add a language as an additional teaching area who need to commence at beginner level should enrol in the Bachelor of Education (In-Service Conversion). Students enrolling in the course in trimester 2 will be unable to commence study in the language at beginner level. Career Opportunities Examples include careers in advertising and marketing, alternative energies and resource sector, architecture and the built environment, arts, creative industries (eg multimedia, music, film, performing arts, journalism), education, engineering, international relations, public relations, diplomacy, international law, tourism, as well as a range of public sector opportunities (eg foreign affairs, policy, intelligence, security), international business and management (especially in international agencies and companies), law, science, social sciences, translation and editing services. Existing teachers can open new opportunities by adding an additional teaching area in a language.
