Japan is the fourth largest economy and there are many opportunities for fluent speakers of Japanese. The Diploma in Japanese helps you become a competent communicator in Japanese, with strong language skills in all areas required for daily communication.
You also develop an awareness of the cultural and social differences between New Zealand and Japan. The programme is a mix of intensive language study, practical application of the language, cultural awareness and an understanding of business and hospitality etiquette.

AUT University encourages early application. These qualifications will remain open until all places have been filled.
Those who enter the programme with a degree will have an even wider choice of careers depending on their other qualifications.
Students who have secondary school qualifications in Japanese may be exempt from one or more papers at the introductory level and go straight into higher level papers, subject to a placement test. These students would then be required to make up the points with other papers.
