Dual degrees broaden your opportunities and allow you to study different areas simultaneously

This dual degree is designed for talented students with ability and a keen interest in both scientific research and law. You will develop your critical and analytical skills in your Law studies and can gain real world perspective by undertaking an internship and practical legal experience in our community legal centre. This applied learning will be complemented by the hands on learning and a strong research focus in your science (advanced) degree where you’ll be able to tailor the program to your aptitude and interest. In the last year of your science degree you will complete an honours year. A total of 288 units of credit is required to complete this dual degree program. Students must satisfy the requirements for the Bachelor of Science (Advanced) and Bachelor of Laws components.

Bachelor of Science (Advanced)

UNSW offers science students the most advanced facilities and innovative teaching. The Advanced Science degree has been designed to cater for the specific abilities and interests of talented students with a superior ATAR score.Your degree is made up of individual courses, some prescribed, some free for you to choose. In special courses in the first and second years, students work together in multi-disciplinary group projects aimed at acquiring and applying the critical and analytical skills behind scientific research. In second year and later years, a number of courses are offered at advanced level. Training is directed to developing the critical and integrative thinking needed for the successful completion of a research-based honours year.

Bachelor of Laws 
A law degree opens up a wide range of career opportunities in a myriad of fields

Studying law offers a wonderful intellectual challenge in that it develops the ability to argue from a basis of evidence in a way which can be very hard for non-lawyers to counter. Studying law will equip you with intellectual skills which will give you a decisive advantage in whichever profession you choose. At UNSW Law, we prepare our students for careers in business, media, the arts, science, education, engineering and government. We number among our Alumni, judges, barristers, partners and solicitors in leading law firms, politicians, entertainers, academics and some of the most dedicated public sector and community sector lawyers in Australia.

All domestic applicants (Australian citizens, permanent residents and New Zealand citizens) who wish to study an undergraduate Law dual degree program at UNSW must sit the LAT. You will be assessed for entry to UNSW Law on the basis of both your LAT results and your academic results. Academic results will be combined with the LAT result on a sliding scale so that those with very high academic results require a lower LAT score, and those with lower academic results require a higher LAT score.
