Mandarin Modules

UBD students can study Mandarin as part of their degree program, and by taking six modules they can minor in Mandarin. One exciting offering for students is Mandarin and Engineering which gives students the opportunity to study in China as part of their degree.

Currently the Mandarin modules are in the process of being benchmarked to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). This will ensure that the modules continue to be in keeping with best practice and international standards.
