Progression guides

(1) Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Laws

The following table illustrates a degree progression example for a student enrolled in the Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Laws on a full-time basis undertaking a total of 24 credit points per semester.

This example shows a major with a two 1000-level + two 2000-level + four 3000-level structure. Students who wish to complete a major with a two 1000-level + three 2000-level + three 3000-level structure then would replace one of the degree electives in Year 2 with a 2000-level unit for the major and one of the 3000-level units for the major in Year 3 with a degree elective.

Progression into the Bachelor of Laws single degree

By the end of the third year in the combined degree program, full-time students should have completed the requirements for their Bachelor of Commerce degree (144 credit points) and will be eligible to graduate with this degree.

Students then transfer to the single Bachelor of Laws degree in their fourth year and complete the remaining requirements for this degree under the supervision of the Sydney Law School. An additional two years of study are required at the Law School - 'Year 4' and 'Year 5' as indicated under Law units of study (core and elective) in the preceding information, where the remaining units of study for the Bachelor of Laws are completed.

Further information on the final years of this program is available in the Sydney Law School Handbook.
