This program encourages students to select combinations of subject areas and particular subjects which will best suit their interests and aspirations. It is a generalist program offering the student flexibility in their choice of majors with the opportunity to either specialise in a particular area of study, or to select complementary majors.
Work Experience & Internships Some students without practical workplace experience, or with workplace experience in a field different from their studies, choose to undertake an internship as part of their degree. This intensely practical professional development approach fosters graduates who are ready, willing and able to hit the ground running and make an immediate impact in the workplace.
