    Rhys Malcolm

    Bachelor of Arts - Bachelor of Science

    Through my degree, I’ve had the opportunity to study at Kwansei Gakuin University in Japan. Even if you only intend to build a career from one of your degrees, the skills you can learn, and experiences you can gain from your second degree will be highly transferable and will broaden your career options.

    Stuart Hodgson

    Bachelor of Arts – Bachelor of Science

    If you are having trouble choosing between two disciplines, why not do both? I had interests in both the Arts and Sciences and would have been unable to pursue those interests through a single course. They complement each other well, with Arts training critical reasoning, and Science teaching analytical techniques.
