Entry requirements
For admission to double degree courses, generally the higher
requirements for the two component single degree courses
is a good indicator of the likely requirements for the double
degree course. Where there is a range of criteria for one
of the component courses, these criteria will still apply to
the double degree course. In each case you should expect
to meet the entry level of each of the single degree courses.
Some double degree courses may require you to study across
two campuses in order to complete your course. See page 96
for full entry requirements.
