English Language Program

English Language Program

Griffith College provides free Language Development Modules (LDMs) to better prepare graduates to meet the high expectations of language usage in tertiary education.

If you are an international student entering your program with the minimum English language requirement, you will benefit from two Language Development Modules (LDMs).

The LDMs are free, compulsory and will be taken concurrently with the academic courses in your selected diploma program. The modules consist of two hours face-to-face instruction per week and three hours of online self-access.

Successful completion of the two modules is required to graduate with a Diploma Award.

Benefits for students

The LDMs enable students to develop their English language skills in a participatory learning environment. As the modules will be studied together with students' regular academic programs, they have been designed to support their overall achievement at the College.

This model of language development underpins the future success of our students in their chosen discipline at the College, University and beyond.

Who needs to take the LDMs?

  • International diploma students who enter their program with the minimum English language requirement
  • Domestic diploma students (citizens of Australia, New Zealand or Permanent Residents) with qualifications completed in a language other than English 

Students entering their diploma program with higher English language scores may enrol in the LDMs voluntarily.
