Students can also undertake a Combined Degree program, which enables them to study two undergraduate degrees simultaneously in less time than two single degrees. If studying a Combined Degree Program students only have to apply once through SATAC. If students complete this degree with an average grade of credit or above and are interested in postgraduate research they can apply to enter the Bachelor of Sustainable Environments (Honours). This degree has a common first year with the Bachelor of Geospatial Science, so students can transfer and retain the credits for courses they have completed.
