Combining studies to save time graphic


UWA course model

Our course structure is exclusive to UWA and is benchmarked against world-leading universities, giving our students a competitive edge when entering the workforce. Students can combine two majors into one degree, no matter how different they are, meaning they can pair their interests with their career goals, without losing time or money.

If a student is career-oriented and wants to study engineering, they can also study a finance major. When they graduate, they are not limited to a career in engineering, but could look multiple career paths in commerce-related fields too, giving our graduates an edge to be adaptable in a progressive job market.

3 + 2 model

Studying a three-year undergraduate degree paired with a two-year postgraduate degree means a student will graduate with a higher qualification than a double degree (taught at other universities) and, in some cases, will do so in less time.

What sets us apart?


We offer students career advice to develop their professional experience and have a range of services to help them achieve their career goals while studying at UWA and even after they graduate.

Careers Centre

The Careers Centre provides a range of services to develop skills, build self-awareness of work interests and preferences, decision-making and career planning.


As soon as a student accepts their offer they are offered a UniMentor to help them settle in.

Careers and Employability Award

This recognises the activities and hands-on learning that participating students undertake; it appears on a student’s transcript at graduation.

Internships and work integrated learning

Provides formal supported opportunities to experience a workplace, and develop both technical and soft skills.

Careers Fair

Students have the opportunity to meet potential employers on campus at the annual Careers Fair. There, they can apply for summer internships and work with big-name brands.


CareersHub (job listings), workshops, online resources, interview skills available to all students.

Social media

Find out more about LinkedIn workshops and personal branding (students can get their LinkedIn photo taken).

At UWA, we attract students with high aspirations. We aim to meet these aspirations of our students by being a research-rich university and offering our students:

  • integrated learning and a balanced learning environment of theory and practical learning
  • how to apply research to their life and community
  • how to apply critical thinking
  • the chance to learn with thought-leaders with deep expertise, not just from them

At UWA, you'll not only study towards a degree but have the opportunity to gain valuable experience towards your future career.

  • Mentoring: connect with an industry professional for one-on-one advice.
  • Not-for-credit experience: Our network of industry placements allows you to find uncredited placements.
  • Placement for credit: For-credit placements or practicums are arranged as part of your degree.

Advising on prerequisites

English is a prerequisite to tertiary study at UWA, and some courses also require a certain level of mathematics. For all other courses where a prerequisite is indicated, students can still enrol if the subject has not been completed, but they will need to complete a bridging unit within their degree.
