COMBINED DEGREE PROGRAMS
The combined degree programs offered by the University of Newcastle allow you to graduate with two degrees in less time than it would take to complete them separately.
Combined degrees are designed to offer an increased breadth of learning, recognising the multidisciplinary nature of today's working environments.
When you choose to study a combined degree you will increase your career options, skills and knowledge; enhancing your academic and professional qualities and making you more desirable to employers. You will have added variety in your studies and satisfy more than one of your interests.
There are some special requirements with combined degrees. Students must undertake a program of study that incorporates the requirements for each individual degree.
You will undertake most of your classes at the Newcastle Conservatorium of Music, enjoying industry-level facilities, technologies and resources. Our students also benefit from our strong community, alumni and industry networks.
