Bachelor of Science / Bachelor of Laws

University of Sydney

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00026A

The Combined Law program allows students to study the Bachelor of Laws in conjunction with another degree. Students enrol with their partner faculty for the first 3 years and then transfer to the University of Sydney Law School at the completion of their other degree to finish the last 2 years of their law studies. The Sydney Science/Law combination allows candidates to select from up to 29 specialist majors in Science alongside Law which allows students to customise the degree according to their own interests. If students have completed at least one year of a recognised tertiary qualification, they will be considered on the better of their ATAR or tertiary qualification. Recent experience suggests that an ATAR of 99.50 or a tertiary grade point average in the distinction range is necessary to gain entry, although this will vary according to the strength of the field of applicants.


Combined Law is organised in such a manner to permit you to study your partner degree first. At the same time however, you can study the equivalent of your first year of law.
