Typically a degree takes three years of full-time study if you do six courses a year. Each course has a code. The letters tell you the subject, while the numbers tell you what level it is. Some courses and degrees are limited entry – in other words, they’re so popular we have to restrict how many people do them. If you want to study one of these, be in early.
You can include a full range of subjects in your study programme. And the great thing is you’re not locked in. If you change your mind after the first year, it’s usually not that hard to pursue a new direction.
What is a Conjoint Degree?
A conjoint degree is a specialised double degree programme that allows students to complete two three-year degrees within four years of full-time study.
Victoria has a wide variety of undergraduate degrees that can be studied together in a conjoint programme. This enables students to choose a mix of subjects which suit their strengths and career aspirations.
The time taken is shorter than a double degree and requires a good level of academic progress to stay in this programme. Students can choose to complete conjoint degrees from their second year of study. It is not available for first-year students.
Conjoint Degrees may be chosen from the following:
For specific requirements for conjoint degrees please contact the Faculty Student Academic Services for the degrees you wish to study.
What is a Double Degree?
A double degree is the general term for studying for two degrees at this university, whether at the same time or consecutively. As with conjoint degrees, it is easier than doing the two degrees separately, but the amount of cross-crediting is less (120 points, as compared to 180 points for the corresponding conjoint) and it may be necessary to do more.
