    Most bachelor degrees are three (e.g. Business, Science) or four (e.g. Engineering, Social Work) years. The three-year degrees, typically provide the option of continuing to an honours program for a fourth year if your results are deemed high enough. To gain an honours degree, students undertake one year of research after their three-year bachelor degree.

  • Double major

    A major studied in conjunction with another major in a Program. The two majors can be from two Faculties, provided they are approved for the program. In dual award programs students typically undertake a major in each program.

  • Dual award or combined degree programs

    (4 – 7 years)

    Combined degree programs involve the study of two degrees as one program under a single set of rules. When you graduate, you will be awarded two degrees.
