Candidates may complete the requirements for the course structure by completing two Common units and 60 credit points of study selected from Indonesian, Mandarin or Greek language and/or non-language units. Although the course is not structured into Core and Elective Units, most students concentrate on doing the language units sequentially, commencing with the unit appropriate to their language competency upon enrolment in the course, and supplementing these language units with their choice of non-language units.
