Page Background

“I’m from Singapore. I thought that studying

in a whole different environment would

be interesting, and Auckland seems to be

a good place to travel to and study in at

the same time. There are many academic

and pastoral support programmes at the

University as well as extracurricular clubs,

so it’s not hard to find a balance between

work and play.

“The University of Auckland also has an

excellent international reputation and its

Linguistics programme is highly ranked.

A degree from here is internationally

recognised and opens up many different

opportunities.

“It is great to be part of the Faculty of Arts.

There are many different subjects and

courses and the hardest part is deciding

what subjects you should do in the short

amount of time you have here. That being

said, it is nice to know that the faculty will

always be there to guide you and point you

in the right direction.”

Nabilah Md Johan

is studying for a

Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics and French.

Diploma in Languages (DipLang)

Part-time:

Normally taken part-time alongside a degree; equivalent to one year’s full-time study.

The time taken to complete depends on your enrolment pattern.

Points:

120 (eight 15-point courses)

Taught at:

City Campus

Application closing date:

8 December 2016 (applications received after this date may be

considered).

Classes start Semester One:

6 March 2017

The Diploma in Languages allows you to study one or two foreign languages alongside any degree and

graduate with an additional qualification. Knowledge of another language and culture can enrich your

other studies and extend your skills for future careers or postgraduate study.

Languages available

Chinese, Cook Islands Maori, Egyptian (taught under Ancient History), French, German, Greek

(Ancient), Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Māori, Russian, Samoan, Spanish, Tongan. (Courses may

not always be available in all languages.)

Structuring your study

Both the Diploma and Certificate in Languages are designed to supplement your degree study. You can

combine these programmes with any other degree, including a BA. There are many possible ways you

could structure your study, depending on how long you want to take to complete. You could start your

language study in your first year at University or later on.

You can study one or two languages for the Diploma in Languages (DipLang). You can study a language

you have never learned before or one you have prior knowledge of. Your level of competence will be

assessed during enrolment to ensure you begin your University study at the right level, whether this

is beginners or more advanced. At least half your courses will have to be at more advanced levels,

including at least two courses at Stage III, the most advanced undergraduate level. Because you need

to build up your knowledge and cannot take courses at different levels in a single semester or year, it is

not usually possible to study a language full-time.
