Learning a foreign language is the start of a global future.
We understand China’s growth into an economical, social and political powerhouse has opened the doors to careers engaging with the country. That’s why Swinburne offers Chinese (Mandarin) language in conjunction with Asian Studies courses.
Chinese language study is an opportunity to learn Mandarin while gaining a rich understanding of Chinese history and culture. We provide language instruction at beginner and advanced levels. You can also undertake an in-country experience through one of Swinburne’s partner universities in China. Study tours are another option we provide through work integrated learning.
