Course Units

A sequence of semester units in ACT senior secondary studies leads to a minor (comprising two semester units) or a major (comprising at least 3.5 units, essentially a two-year sequence). A major in Languages is recognised for bonus points by the Australian National University, under the ANU Awards National Access Scheme.

For students interested in further studies in languages after Year 12, there is also information on options for studying languages at universities on the University Languages Portal Australia.

  • Beginning courses under BSSS language eligibility guidelines are intended for students with minimal prior experience in the target language, taking account of three criteria: prior participation in school-based language studies; residency in a country where the target language is used; and use of the target language outside the classroom (for example at home).
  • Courses in languages at continuing level build on prior language learning, generally from high school language courses. They consolidate communication skills so that students can understand and use French in a wide range of familiar contexts.
  • Courses in languages at advanced level build from a broader set of capabilities, generally from experience gained through bilingual and immersion programs or family language background. They refine and extends communication skills so that students can understand and communicate key information and ideas in a broad range of contexts and can interact with a degree of ease and spontaneity.
