Other Information

All students with previous 'language experience or exposure' are required to take a language placement test to determine their language proficiency in order to ensure enrolment into the language course at the most appropriate level. 

 

The Course Convenor, in consultation with the Language Convenor will move students into an appropriate level course if students are deemed to be of a different proficiency level. Students are also encouraged to consult their course convenors immediately upon if they find that their proficiency level differs from that expected by the course.
