In second year, you'll work with another multidisciplinary team on the Sustainability project to define a solution to a local environmental issue. This will refine your research, presentation, analysis and problem-solving skills. In third year, you'll further enhance these skills through the Entrepreneurship project, in which your team will identify a business opportunity and develop a business plan. Alongside these projects, you can also complete a second major from across the University. Choose from languages, maths, science, humanities or a second commerce major.
