What is a dual program?

Dual programs enable you to study for two degrees at the same time. Once you have fulfilled the requirements of the two chosen programs, you can graduate with both degrees. It is important to contact the relevant faculties or schools if you are considering a dual program.

Why would I enrol for a dual program?

  • By enrolling in a dual program, you can complete two degrees in a shorter time than it would take to complete two degrees one after another.
  • A dual degree program gives you the flexibility to study several areas of interest at once.
  • You not only have a competitive edge in the workplace because of the additional knowledge and skills acquired, your career possibilities are greatly broadened.

How do I apply?

  • meet all the entry prerequisites for the program you wish to add to your enrolment.
