I chose UOW because of the flexibility of the law degree and the range of double degrees. I also liked its emphasis on practical experience, particularly the compulsory internship. I am currently working as a paralegal at a local firm. Being able to work in my desired field prior to graduating has enabled me to better understand the realities of a law firm and put the skills I’ve learnt at uni into practice.”
Benefits of a double degree
When your passions lie in more than one area, don't choose between them – study both. You'll experience numerous benefits, including:
- Gaining variety within your studies, with complementary qualifications that exhibit your many skills, interests and strengths.
- Graduating sooner. Double degrees are typically completed one or even two years faster than two separate degrees, without compromising your learning.
- Becoming future-ready, with the knowledge and flexibility to adapt to a variety of industries, both existing and emerging.
- Developing the real-world skills employers want and the confidence to succeed outside the classroom.
- Expanding your career options.
There are many double major combinations available for UOW bachelor degrees.
A double major lets you explore different interests, or customise your study to suit a particular career specialisation. In some cases you will still complete your degree within the normal duration.
Example double major combinations:
- Biology and Chemistry
- Creative Writing and English Literatures
- History and Politics
- eBusiness, and Network Design and Management
- Finance and Accountancy
- Mining and Environmental Engineering
- Public Relations and Marketing
