Fast-track your career and expertise with a combined degree

As a business student at UniSA you will have the opportunity to pair two single degrees to create your own combined degree program. Combining degrees enables you to specialise in two fields, providing you with choice, flexibility and increased employer value at the start of, and throughout, your career. 

By pairing your business studies with a second qualification, you will study two undergraduate degrees simultaneously, typically in less time than two single degrees and without having to apply for the second degree through SATAC. 

Generally speaking, a combined degree can be studied in four years full-time (or part-time equivalent). You will need to be a current business student at UniSA enrolled in a single business degree in order to be eligible and apply.

A combined business degree will enable you to:

  • Specialise in two fields and gain a competitive advantage when entering your chosen career
  • Complete a combined degree and graduate with double the opportunities in a shorter time
  • Graduate with two parchments, one for each degree.

Entry requirements

To apply for a combined degree, you must first apply for and enrol in a single UniSA business degree via SATAC. On completion of 18 units of study in your single degree and satisfaction of the entry requirements, you may apply to add your second degree through an internal program transfer.

You will need a minimum GPA of 4.0 (P1) to be eligible to study two programs concurrently.

When combining your chosen degrees, you will be given a study plan listing the courses to be completed in each degree.  You are responsible for ensuring you meet the requirements of each degree, making sure of the following:

  • The courses are available in the semester you have scheduled them
  • You meet the prerequisite rules for each course
  • You use electives to do your professional sequence courses where applicable.

Please speak to the Business Student Hub for advice on combining degrees.

International students are not eligible to apply for a combined degree. International students planning to add a second degree should seek individual advice early in their first degree. Applications for a second degree are made through StudyLink in the final semester of their first degree.
