Details

Language proficiency isn't just about knowing words in another language it's about communication. It requires an understanding of the subtleties of culture, society, history, body language and relationships. It is this unique combination of specialist skills that makes multilingual individuals so highly prized in government and business.

The Western Sydney University Bachelor of Arts language majors allow you to choose the language that best suits your career aspirations and current level of language proficiency. 

There are different entry levels available for commencing study in Indonesian:

  • Beginners level is for those with no previous study of the Indonesian language.
  • Intermediate level is for students who are non-native speakers with study of the language to HSC 2 unit level, or are native speakers of the Indonesian language but with no comprehensive formal study.
  • Post-intermediate level is for students who are non-native speakers with substantial formal study and near-native competence, or who are native speakers of the Indonesian language with above intermediate level of literacy.

An Indonesian major comprises a sequence of eight subjects (units) with six subjects at Levels 2 and 3 (with no less than two of these at Level 3). Students should enrol in the language progression sequence that they think best fits their level of skill. Students may consult with the Languages and Linguistics staff if they are unsure of their entry level.
