Is a double degree worth it?

Choosing a university course can sometimes mean committing to one passion and excluding others. We spoke to our academics and graduates about how a double degree can help you graduate more fulfilled and confident about the future.

Studying two top-tier courses has not only provided me with a solid foundation of theories and academic practices, but the hands-on teaching approach naturally allowed me to excel within a practical setting in the real world.

Common questions

Skip to next topic

How does a double degree work?

A double degree, sometimes referred to as a combined degree, allows you to study two degrees at the same time. A double degree doesn’t increase your workload. Each trimester, you’ll study the same number of units as you would in a single degree while enjoying the diverse mix of study topics that come with a double degree. When you graduate, you’ll receive two certificates for each of the degrees you’ve completed.

How much does a double degree cost?

A double degree can significantly reduce the cost of study when compared with studying each degree separately. Visit course pages you’re interested in for specific information on course fees.

For more information on future student services and courses:

How long does it take to complete a double degree?

By focusing more on core units and less on elective units, a double degree can significantly reduce the duration of study when compared with studying each degree separately. In many cases, you can graduate with a second degree in as little as one extra year of study.

Is online study the same quality as on-campus learning?
