Go8 Languages Incentive Schemes

3 Feb 2014

Learning to speak an additional language is increasingly important for effective participation in a globalised world.

Group of Eight universities play a vital role in the delivery and support of languages education in Australia. All 35 languages currently available at tertiary level in Australia are offered at Go8 universities.

In addition, a wide range of Languages incentives are available both for entry to and while enrolled in programs of study at Go8 universities (see link to Languages incentives PDF below).

In 2007, the Go8 released a discussion paper, Languages in Crisis, which proposed co-operative action between Commonwealth, state and territory governments to achieve a consistent national approach to language education at all levels of the education system.

The Go8 welcomes the opportunity to work with government, schools and other higher education institutions to promote and encourage the study of Languages.
