Benefits of a BA conjoint programme

Have the best of both worlds - study the subjects you love and graduate with two degrees. You can combine study in two different areas, such as literature and law, politics and business, or engineering and languages.

The communication and creative thinking skills you can develop through a BA can add value to other degrees. You can extend your skills and enhance your career prospects.

You need not begin a conjoint programme when you first enrol at University. Provided you meet the admission criteria, you can transfer into a conjoint as long as you have not completed more than 270 points for either degree and have not graduated in either degree.

Entry requirements

Conjoint programmes are intended for more able students, because of the heavier workload involved. Find out more about entry requirements.


Most conjoint programmes take four years of full-time study to complete. The BA/BE, BA/BFA and BA/LLB take five years to complete. The BA/LLB(Hons) takes a little longer.

A normal conjoint enrolment consists of 135 points each year (the equivalent of nine 15-point courses each year). The standalone BA degree consists of 120 points each year, or eight 15-point courses.
