Gamilaraay is an Indigenous Australian language from the mid-northwest of NSW that is currently undergoing revitalisation. This unit of study will provide students who have completed Speaking Gamilaraay 1 with increased competence in reading, writing, understanding and speaking Gamilaraay. They will be able to recognise and construct more complex utterances in the language. They will study a number of texts in Gamilaraay and in other Aboriginal languages, particularly the closely related Yuwaalaraay, and look at some material in the more distantly related Wangaaybuwan, a language with considerably better records than Gamilaraay Yuwaalaraay [GY] They will also study derivational processes in Gamilaraay, and continue to develop Gamilaraay resources.

Single subject FAQs
Single subjects are the individual components that make up a degree. With Open Universities Australia, you’re able to study many of them as stand-alone subjects, including postgraduate single subjects, without having to commit to a degree.
Each of your subjects will be held over the course of a study term, and they’ll usually require 10 to 12 hours of study each week. Subjects are identified by a title and a code, for example, Developmental Psychology, PSY20007.
First, find the degree that you would like to study on our website.
If that degree allows entry via undergraduate subjects, there will be information about this under the Entry Requirements section. You will find a list of 2-4 open enrolment subjects you need to successfully complete to qualify for admission into that qualification.
Once you pass those subjects, you will satisfy the academic requirements for the degree, and you can apply for entry.
Our student advisors are here to help you take that next step, so don’t hesitate to reach out when you’re ready! We’ve also made it easier to figure out the right way to get started on our pathways page.
