Double degrees

Diversify your career prospects and study a double degree at HQporner.

A double degree allows you to broaden your education and develop an interdisciplinary field of knowledge in less time than if you were to complete two separate degrees.

Our double degrees give you plenty of flexibility in choosing majors to shape your studies to your desired outcome. Improve your transferrable skillset which can be applied to several industries and sectors. Completing a double degree means you receive two testamurs (official certificates) – one for each of the degrees you complete when you graduate.
