Course Enrolment

Learn Chinese to challenge yourself, improve employability, engage with rich histories and culture, travel, connect with your heritage and communicate with family, friends and work colleagues.

Thanks for your feedback to our Pre-registration Survey, which will remain live for some ongoing weeks. Meanwhile, the Term 3 classes will be open for REGISTRATION from July 21.

Our courses are currently delivered online by experienced local Chinese teachers and from our Chinese partner Fudan University. We continue to provide the online courses to avoid uncertainties, to provide continuous learning and for classes to be more convenient and more accessible to a wider group of people.

Minimum numbers will be required and we do allow flexibility in our courses to best meet the needs of our students.
