Double degrees allow you to deepen your knowledge and expertise within two separate study areas. This means you can choose from our range of exciting, diverse courses and embark on a journey as unique as you are.
  • 1 Course learning outcomes are those for the two constituent courses undertaken in the Double Degree.
  • Career outcomes

    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.

    Course structure

    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.
    The structure will be created as a combination of the constituent degrees.

    We want your study experience with us to be as smooth as possible and we know that choosing from lists and lists of electives can sometimes be overwhelming!

    The guides and links below are presented to help you navigate all of these options and find the electives that are best for you.

    Please don't hesitate to get in touch with our team at UConnect if you need any help.

    Your electives can be used to add breadth to your degree, by exploring a variety of different subject areas from across the University in areas such as Health, Business, Science and the Creative Arts. Alternatively, you can deepen your engagement with specific subject areas, for example, by completing additional units in the same discipline as your major or related fields. You can also use this space to complete an optional 2nd major which may be a 2nd major from your current course or a major from another course*. Please contact if you need more information or if you want to add a 2nd major to your study plan. *Some exclusions apply. Not all majors can be taken by students in different courses.
