Dual fast-track degrees

Get further faster with Dual fast-track degrees

Dual fast-track degrees will get you the same high-quality qualifications in less time. These prestigious and competitive paths reduce the number of overall courses you need to take. Our streamlined approach removes any overlapping course units (credits) across similar curriculums.

Dual fast-track degrees allow you to: 

  • Save one or two terms of study
  • Apply once for admission to two degrees
  • Gain a competitive edge on the job market

Based on the different disciplines, the following courses are recommended; a student who is admitted into a program without one of these recommended courses will have to complete a bridging course.

Past experience indicates that students with the most science prerequisites, including physics, biology and chemistry, have an increased rate of success.
