Protect nationally strategic languages (Chinese & Japanese) at Swinburne University

We, the undersigned, respectfully ask you not to approve the closure of the strategically important Chinese and Japanese programs at Swinburne University.

Why is this important?

1. Chinese and Japanese are "nationally strategic languages" --- Australia needs graduates who are culturally and linguistically competent.

2. As language students at Swinburne, we will be disadvantaged by not being able to complete our language studies at Swinburne.

Reasons for signing

  • Because I want to learn the language and live in Japan teaching English
  • To learn language is important to understand each other well, especially when the relationship is not good. It just helps worsen the situation between China and Australia if they close the program.
  • The study of languages is of critical importance to Australia’s future.
