A double degree can help you build a unique set of skills that will help you stand out in a competitive employment market. When you graduate from a double degree you will receive a separate degree certificate (also called a testamur) for each component course.
Please refer to the course page for each component course for career and professional recognition information.
Students will complete a minimum of 400 credit points of study that incorporates the core and/or major and/or discipline elective requirements of both constituent courses. Refer to the course structure of the constituent courses for detailed requirements.
A list of Double Degree program exclusions will be maintained by the course coordinator in order to ensure that across all possible double degree combinations the course rules for each constituent course have been met and course learning outcomes achieved.
The list of exclusions will include, for example, situations where a major in Course A largely overlaps with the core components of Course B. In this example, students would be required to choose an alternative major in Course A.
The list of exclusions will be:
- approved by College Associate Deans Learning and Teaching;
- updated whenever a significant amendment is made to a course that can be taken as part of a Double Degree;
- reviewed annually; and
- published on the University website.

Students must meet the admission requirements for both constituent courses, including any prerequisites.
There are no articulation arrangements for this course. Articulation arrangements for constituent courses may apply to students enrolling in the Double Degree but these will need to be assessed on a case by case basis as elective credit may not be able to be awarded.
Detailed admissions information and advice for all undergraduate courses, including comprehensive, course-level student profiles, is available from UTAS Admissions.
Fees & scholarships
Cost shouldn’t get in the way of you studying.
If you’re a domestic student, you may be eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place in this course. This means your fees will be subsidised by the Australian Government. You’ll only need to pay the student contribution amount for each unit you study within the course.
You may also be able to defer payment of the student contribution amount by accessing a HECS-HELP loan from the Government. If eligible, you’ll only have to pay your tuition fees once you start earning above a specific amount.
