Bringing languages and cultures together

Ranked in the top 100 QS World University Rankings by Subject

Create change in our global society

Languages are central to human life. They are the glue that binds our societies together, and underpin all aspects of life; from everyday interactions in our personal lives through to governance and work at all levels of society. In an increasingly interconnected world, the demand for graduates with high levels of proficiency in key world and regional languages and advanced cultural knowledge is on the rise.

At the School of Languages and Cultures we seek to further knowledge and understanding about language and the intersection of language and culture. Our staff specialise in researching and teaching a range of world languages as well as languages of Australia, and about the cultures with which they are inextricably linked.

About the School

In light of the developing COVID-19 situation, The University of Queensland has taken important steps to ensure the health and wellbeing of our students, staff, alumni, partners and broader community.

Therefore some of our seminars and forums will now be run online whereas other events will be postponed to next semester, please see below for current events.

Our thoughts are with all of you managing the consequences of the virus during this unprecedented time.
