Language programs in Victorian government schools
Use the list below to find language programs in government schools. You can search by school name or language.
This list uses data that schools reported to us in 2018. Programs may have changed since then, so always check with the school directly on which languages are offered at each year level. You can find school contact details on
Find My School. 2019 data will be published in June 2020.
Languages as a VCE subject (school years 11 and 12)
You can check which schools offer languages at VCE level through the
schools and studies search, from the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority. The website searches across government, Catholic, independent and specialist schools.
The search is current as of May 2019, always check with the school directly for the latest information.
