  • Career opportunities

    In an age of increasing technological advancements, the link between science and the law will only become stronger. This means graduates with a double degree in science and law will have the power to choose which career they follow.

    As both degrees are internationally recognised, you will have no problem applying for work abroad. Depending on your area of specialisation, you may work in the space industry, biotechnology, intellectual property, mining or forensic law to name just some career paths.

    We help students connect with employers, find jobs and explore career options.
