Studying a double degree is a great way to increase your career options
You’ll graduate with two qualifications and a unique skill set that will set you apart from the rest.
You can choose to combine two degrees from related fields to become a specialist, or degrees from different areas of interest to broaden your options. With our extensive range of study areas, you’re bound to find a combination that's right for you.

Discover the benefits of completing a double degree at Griffith University.
Through our comprehensive WIL program, you’ll put what you learn in the classroom into practice and graduate with the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to stand out in the job market. It’s also a great way to make valuable contacts who can help you kick start your career.
How do double degrees work?
When you study a double degree, you'll complete the two degrees concurrently, usually over four or five years, saving you time and money. As a double degree graduate, you'll receive two degree certificates—one for each qualification.
Final year capstone course
In your final year of study, you'll complete a capstone course that will bring together the knowledge and skills you've gained in each component of your double degree.
Hands-on industry experience
Our double degrees are structured to include industry internships and work placements, so you'll make practical connections within and between each of your areas of study.
With our trimester calendar, you may have the option to complete a double degree in the same length of time as a single degree by taking courses (subject to availability) in every trimester each year.
It is important to check the degree requirements including placement requirements, before you apply.
You can list up to six preferences on your QTAC or five preferences on your UAC application. You’ll receive an offer for the highest preference you’re eligible for.
If you’re applying for a double degree, it’s a good idea to list the two component single degrees as preferences as well—these may be easier to gain entry to. You may have the chance to upgrade to a double degree from a single degree after a year of study.
