A conjoint programme doubles your knowledge and skills, giving you a qualification in two different disciplines. Our conjoint programmes are designed to prepare you for emerging industries and new careers as well as combining popular options.
Conjoint study increases your perspective, skills, networking and career opportunities.
A double degree is different from a conjoint degree.
A double degree does not have its own set of regulations. There is no minimum grade average to achieve each year, and there are no constraints about papers having to be taken for each of the 2 qualifications in each year of study. In a double degree, the two degrees can be studied at the same time or one after the other. Upon successful completion, graduates will receive 2 parchments (degree certificates) – one for each of the two degrees.
For example: Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Laws (BBus/LLB). Students need to enrol in each degree separately with the relevant Faculties.
If a Conjoint or Double Degree is not an option for you, you may be able to study an additional major or minor from outside of the degree you have chosen. This allows you to pursue an area of interest from a wide range of subjects. Further information is contained under each degree page.
