The School of International Studies is part of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and contains departments for Chinese and Indonesian, French, German and Russian Studies, Spanish and Latin American Studies, Japanese and Korean Studies, European Studies, Linguistics, and Modern Greek, Latin Studies and Italian Studies.

The School offers undergraduate and postgraduate study in most of the areas listed above. In addition, most languages are offered at different levels depending on a student's ability - eg. Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced. Placement tests are also available.

At UNSW, special emphasis is placed on integrating the study of practical language skills with the study of the social, historical and cultural developments. This approach enables students to achieve a high level of communicative competence while offering them a critical understanding of different cultures.
