Concurrent Study

It is possible to study a combination of programs not listed as a named double degree.

Once you are enrolled in one program, you can apply to add a second program to your enrolment after your first semester or year of study. This is done by completing an Internal Transfer Application form via the University's Admissions Office.

The following programs, suitable for concurrent study, may be completed in a minimum period of time (usually 4 years):

It is also possible to study other combinations not listed above, however they will take longer than four years to complete. Further advice may be sought from the Faculty Office.

Please note: If you are in receipt of a Centrelink benefit, you may experience difficulties if you are not enrolled in at least a 75% study load in one of your concurrent programs.  For example you may have a 50% workload in each program, or a 50% workload in one program and a 25% workload in the other. Centrelink may take the view that you are not enrolled full-time in a recognised double degree program.
