    double degree

    Our double degrees

    Studying for two degrees at once means you’ll graduate with double the qualifications, but it won’t take you double the time.

    A double degree increases your skills and knowledge across two different learning areas and gives you more career opportunities and choices. You’ll study units from both courses, but the condensed program structure means it may take only a year longer than a single degree.
