Languages

Learn more about living when you learn a language online

Learning a language isn’t just about memorising vocabulary, studying grammar and making sense of new sounds. It’s about immersing yourself in another culture. When you find new ways to communicate, the world opens, and you start to see and do things differently.

We’ve partnered with leading Australian universities to offer you the choice to study the language you want, and the flexibility to study how you want:

  • classical and ancient languages
  • national languages of Southeast Asia
  • popular European languages

Get multicultural and multilingual. Communicate with confidence in your chosen language—and pick up a culture’s history and politics along the way.

How it works

Browse, compare, then enrol

Weave one or more languages into your degree, or study a language as a single subject. Our student advisors are ready to help you with study planning. To make sure you’re studying at the right level, you might need to take a quiz before your uni finalises your enrolment.

Work out your finances

During your enrolment, we’ll offer you the option to pay upfront in full, or defer your payment using a student loan. Remember to look into income tax deductions for course fees and study-related expenses.

Get credit for your success

Start with the basics in a beginner’s undergraduate level I class. Then build your language skills with intermediate level II and III classes. Progress, delve deeper and specialise with postgraduate language subjects.
