A double degree course means studying for two degrees simultaneously, usually from different faculties.
A key benefit of studying a double degree is that it can increase your employment options because it broadens your knowledge and skills in different areas. For example, if you have an Journalism/Science double degree you could pursue a career in journalism or science or fields where these intersect.
