Language Study with the School of Culture, History & Language

The School offers a wide range of Asian languages, in a variety of delivery modes. Our language courses can be taken as part of ANU degrees such as the Bachelor of Asian Studies, the Master of Asian and Pacific Studies or the Diploma of Languages.

Students from other universities may be able to enrol in our language programs as cross institutional students.

Those not wanting to commit to a whole degree can study language with us as either non-award students, or audit some of the courses with the Centre for Continuing Education.

Some language programs offer majors (8 courses) and some offer minors and specialisations (4 courses). Some languages are available as one-off intensive courses or a yearlong study program. All of our language courses are available for both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Students of Chinese, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Sanskrit, Thai and Vietnamese also have the opportunity to learn their target language in-country, through our Learning Language Locally programs, Year in Asia program, or university exchange.

To see a list of all our language offerings including mode of delivery, please go to the Language Offerings at the School page.
