Double degrees - Are they worth it?
Universities: Posted 23-11-17 Deadline - No Deadline
With the end of the school year coming up you might be considering heading to uni and studying a double degree. What this means is you’ll be completing two separate qualifications e.g. Law and Business, at the same time. Usually, it will take less time to complete a double degree than it would to do one degree after the other and you get to walk away with two shiny certificates on graduation day. There’s a lot of pros and cons that come with doing a double degree, so it’s worth sussing out whether it’s worth it before you enrol.
