UWA's Undergraduate courses
What is UWA's course model?
UWA's course model is benchmarked against world-leading universities, giving you a competitive edge when you enter the workforce. As a student, you can study two majors in one degree, no matter how different they are, so you can combine your interests and career goals without losing time or money.
There are more than 70+ majors offered within our 5 undergraduate degrees:
- Bachelor of Arts*
- Bachelor of Biomedical Science
- Bachelor of Commerce
- Bachelor of Science
- Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours)
*Note: majors previously offered within a Bachelor of Design are offered under a Bachelor of Arts.
UWA's three-year undergraduate degrees consist of 24 units or subjects. You will complete at least one degree-specific major, nominated from your chosen degree, and a number of units designed to broaden your educational experience.
You can then decide to study eight electives (free choice units) or take a second major. Your second major can be chosen from any degree program. For example a Bachelor of Science student can study Physiology + electives; or Physiology + Population Health (another Science major); or Physiology + Management (a Commerce major).
You also get to study four Broadening units either as part of your second major or electives.
Our students are also encouraged to expand their knowledge of their field by taking advantage of the more than 180 international university partnerships for study abroad opportunities.
