Vertical Double Degree applications

In a Vertical Double Degree program, you can combine a Bachelor degree and a Master degree from related disciplines for depth of knowledge and specialist skills; or combine degrees from different disciplines for breadth and transferrable skills.

These programs offer time and cost savings when compared with studying a Bachelor and a Master degree separately.
