Bachelor of Advanced Studies

Stand out when you graduate
If you’re looking to improve your career prospects, open the door to further academic study, or pursue a passion, a combined Bachelor of Advanced Studies is your next step.

The Bachelor of Advanced Studies can be taken in combination with an eligible Bachelor's degree and offers you the flexibility to explore multiple interests in four (sometimes five) years.

Distinguish yourself in your final year by choosing to undertake advanced coursework and a substantial project.

This degree enables you to:

  • Design your own degree by combining majors from a range of disciplines.
  • Complete a second major from either your primary study area or the shared pool of majors and minors.
  • Deepen your critical thinking skills through advanced coursework, real-world industry, entrepreneurial, community and research challenges across disciplines and a substantial project.

Students commencing undergraduate study, including recent high school leavers, non-recent school leavers and mature-age entry.
