Is weighing up your future weighing on your mind?

06/11/2020 | 6 mins

Choosing one major over another can often be a difficult decision. Especially if you’re not exactly sure of the career path you wish to take.

A UWA combination gives you the best of both worlds.

You can study courses that are great on their own, but together can help fast-track your future.

Decisions, decisions

Still not 100% certain of where you see yourself in the next four to six years?

You’re far from alone.

For many students, the first port of call is to consider a double degree – two standard single degree subjects taken at the same time.

But at UWA there is an alternative.

That’s because we have a range of courses that are great on their own, but when combined, can really help fast-track your future … whatever you choose it to be. 

Discover UWA combinations

Every UWA combination combines specialisms from different bachelor’s degrees, which means you gain the same level of qualification and transdisciplinary skills found in a standard double degree (Australian Qualifications Framework 2020).

Below are just some of our combinations, in this instance featuring Engineering, Commerce, Computer Science and Sports Science.

Needless to say, there are many, many more.
