Undergraduate

An undergraduate program at the University of South Australia is a package of individual courses. Once all courses in the program are completed the student holds a degree (Bachelor of Discipline Area) and can go on to do postgraduate study. A degree by coursework means you enrol in selected courses, attend lectures and tutorials, and are assessed progressively. You will acquire industry and professionally relevant skills, knowledge and research frameworks to achieve your career goals.
