Assumed Knowledge: HSC English (Advanced)

Applications from Australian and New Zealand citizens and holders of permanent resident visas must be made via the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC).

Applicants who have undertaken studies overseas may have to provide proof of proficiency in English.

UAC

International applicants must apply directly to Western Sydney University via the International Office.

International students applying to The University through the International Office can find details of minimum English proficiency requirements and acceptable proof on their website.

International Office

Overseas qualifications must be deemed by the Australian Education International - National Office of Overseas Skills Recognition (AEI-NOOSR) to be equivalent to Australian qualifications in order to be considered by UAC and Western Sydney University.

Course Structure

Students in this course will only be permitted to undertake the following six Majors of the Bachelor of Business and Commerce:

1. Accounting

2. Applied Finance

3. Economics

4. Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations

5. Management

6. Marketing

Each Major is available at the same campuses as they are available in the 2753 Bachelor of Business and Commerce.

Students must nominate one Major and are not able to undertake additional Majors or Sub-majors.

Each of the Business and Commerce Majors requires students to complete all units required for the relevant Major with the sole exception that students in the Bachelor of Business and Commerce/Bachelor of Laws do not include 200184 Introduction to Business Law in their course because the material is covered in more detail in a combination of other units. In the Bachelor of Business and Commerce/Bachelor of Laws students include one elective unit in place of 200184 Introduction to Business Law.

Students are free to choose any unit from any discipline for the elective unit requirement with the exception of any unit offered by the School of Law. This means you cannot do LLB law units and Interdisciplinary Law units such as 200184 Introduction to Business Law and 200183 Law of Business Organisations for this elective.

Students in this course will be eligible to exit early from the combined degree, graduating from the Major of their Business and Commerce degree on completion of all 24 units listed in the first six study sessions of the relevant sequence below. It should be noted that this includes the eight specified law units.

Students will only be eligible to graduate from their Bachelor of Laws degree on completion of the entire 400 credit point course.
