About

Under the combined degree structure you will obtain two degrees in five years.  The degrees are structured to allow concurrent study in the two degrees, normally completing the non-law component first. Not all combined degrees are offered on all campuses. Classes are offered across a number of distinct modes – wholly face to face or wholly online or a hybrid of face to face and online.

For information concerning the second degree undertaken with Laws, refer to the course description for that program.
