Options also exist for undertaking combined degree programs. In most cases, with 1-year of extra study students can obtain two degrees - increasing your options.

All first degree programs lead on to Honours degrees, from which you may wish to pursue further research by studying for a Masters degree or a Doctor of Philosophy. Alternatively, if you want to retrain in a new area, our Schools offer many Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma courses. Coursework Masters programs are also available in some Schools.

If you interested in following an Honours, Masters or Doctorate of Philosophy program, you can find out more about current and potential research projects by visiting the Faculty's Research Page.
