Why you should consider studying a double degree

Create your own experience.


Are you stuck trying to decide what to study? A double degree might be right for you. At the University of Tasmania, you can combine your interests without having to choose between your passions and your future career. Do any of these sound like you?

“I can’t make up my mind.”

It can be hard deciding what to study when you leave school. Your head might be telling you to study one thing while your heart is telling you to study another. You might even have no clue what you want to do for a career.

With a double degree, you can have the best of both worlds. For example, you could follow your love for music while pursuing a career in law. You could pursue your knack for ancient languages and your talent for design.

By combining your degree, you broaden your options and give yourself time to decide what you want to do after you graduate.

“I have more than one interest.”

Choosing between interests is never easy. If you have a spark for science and love of history, why not combine the two? With a double degree, there are a range of courses you can combine, such as IT and languages or business and psychology.

You might be following your passion, exploring something you enjoyed at high school, or keeping your career options open. A double degree means you never have to choose between what you’re good at.

“I just want to get ahead.”

Are you a high achiever who always puts in the work to get ahead? A double degree is perfect for you. You can get the edge over your peers with a qualification that looks great on your resume. It also shows employers how motivated you are to progress in your career.

No matter what kind of learner you are, there’s a double degree for you. You’ll get more out of your time at uni, maximise your career options, build your own unique set of skills, and pursue your passions.
