Flexible yet focused, UC’s bachelor's degree qualifications equip you to solve the problems of the future. Whether you already have your career path mapped out, or are open to new possibilities, you can tailor your studies to suit your interests and goals.

You can focus on a particular career from day one, or follow new and exciting options as you discover them. Some qualifications are specialised, with most of your first-year courses already set into a programme, such as the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours or Bachelor of Laws.

Others allow much more flexibility, and even give you the chance to choose minors from other programmes, such as a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Commerce. This means you can study diverse combinations of subjects and still complete your degree in three years.

As well as bachelor's degrees, UC also offers a number of undergraduate certificates and diplomas.

Our general undergraduate degrees are flexible three-year degrees that allow you to study a wide range of subjects, while specialising in your major subject. Specialist undergraduate degrees are also offered and these take between three and four years to complete. The degree structure of our specialist degrees is very prescribed as they prepare students for a specific field. Learn more about Undergraduate qualifications
