The Diploma in Languages (D-Lang) is a concurrent program and provides students with the opportunity to undertake language study while completing an undergraduate, graduate coursework or RHD program at the University of Melbourne.

There are 12 languages available all offering a sequenced path of study commencing at entry point 1 (beginners), entry point 3 or entry point 5 (post VCE) and continuing through to proficiency level 6 (advanced). Some languages offer advanced entry points (see individual languages for further information). Students are able to commence the program at different entry points pending on proficiency.

The Diploma in Languages will usually add one year duration to your studies. Undergraduate students have the option to fast track and may complete both programs in three and a half or three years. The duration for graduate coursework students varies on their program, advice and permission for graduates should be sought from their home Faculty prior to application.

The Diploma may only be awarded on the completion of both programs. The final 50 points of the Diploma in Languages is HECS-exempt for undergraduate students only. Domestic students enrolled in a Graduate Coursework or Research Higher Degree course will have access to Commonwealth supported places. International Graduate Coursework and RHD students will attract International undergraduate fees for the Diploma in Languages.
