About Conjoint Degree at University of Waikato

Combining complementary degrees can help you shape a unique programme of study that may be attractive to a range of potential employers. For example, combining a science degree (BSc) with the study of law (LLB) may prepare you for a career in patent law, forensics, insurance and a wide range of consultancy work. Conjoint programmes combining arts (BA) or social sciences (BSocSc) with another degree are becoming increasingly popular for students wishing to pursue careers in policy and research.

The number of points required to complete each level of study in a conjoint programme is dependent on the degree combination you choose. The time frame to complete the programme varies accordingly and is also dependent on your choice of full-time or part-time study. While students are bound by the regulations governing each degree, the total number of papers required may be reduced due to special cross-crediting arrangements. Both qualifications must be taken concurrently and conferred together in order to take advantage of these special cross-credit provisions.

Conjoint degree programmes can be challenging. Students are strongly advised to seek academic advice about these programmes and other options such as double majors and graduate or postgraduate diplomas.

Not all conjoint combinations may be available every year. The regulations surrounding conjoint degrees can be found in the University Calendar and further information on the requirements for specific degrees may be obtained from the Faculty or School of Studies that offer them.
