    Bachelor of Philosophy [X3P]


    The Bachelor of Philosophy is a companion degree for high achieving students who are critical and creative thinkers. People who are motivated to become the thought and action leaders of the future, who want to embrace the world around them, expand their university experience to include multi-disciplinary perspectives, and affect positive change wherever their future careers take them.

    It's a degree built of your choosing that you generally study in parallel with your principal degree, with unit options covering research, leadership and service, cultural understanding, and multidisciplinary perspectives. There is a particular focus on transferable, multidisciplinary skills, and cultural engagement, with many units breaking the classroom/exam tradition and providing you the option to undertake projects within local, state, national or even international communities.

    As a true high achiever reward program, domestic students who qualify for this program currently also receive a full HECS scholarship, meaning you can get a second degree full of amazing and enriching experiences for no extra cost while you complete your main degree.

    For further information on the BPhil, please contact the Course Coordinator on

    This degree is designed to challenge and inspire high achieving students, provide a wealth of multi-disciplinary knowledge and experience, and build a broad set of transferrable soft skills that will give you an edge in your future careers.

    While you can choose a range of units to suit your particular tastes and interests, all students who complete this program will graduate with core set of skills, knowledge and experience. You will have a high-level of professional communication skills, multi-disciplinary project planning and management experience, collaboration and negotiation skills across a range of cultures, backgrounds and disciplines, and a global perspective that is invaluable when applying your knowledge to shape the world.

    Bachelor of Philosophy graduates are the leaders of tomorrow, and this degree expands your education experience to provide the breadth of skills, knowledge and experience you need to excel in whatever path you pursue.

    The Bachelor of Philosophy provides complementary skills, knowledge and experiences that make you an adaptable, motivated and valuable leader in whatever career path(s) you choose.

    The breadth and depth of what you can study in the Bachelor of Philosophy will give you the confidence to shape the world whenever you choose to apply yourself. Employers are looking for people who are both technically capable in their profession, and have demonstrated experience in the multi-disciplinary soft skills such as people, time and project management. For future leaders, these skills become even more valuable as you engage in diverse, complex business environments.

    The multicultural and global perspectives you can establish with this degree will help you to engage with stakeholders across multiple business units, organisations, states, and even countries. Careers in the public and private sector, at all scales and locations, are increasingly interconnected with each other, and dealing with an ever-diversifying range of clients, so these global perspectives become life-long tools you'll use time and again.

    I graduated in 2015 with a combined BA-BBus and BPhil, with my main area of focus in the BPhil being Leadership and Service. In this stream of study, programs included Effective Speaking, Public Relations, the Vice-Chancellor's Leadership Award and a range of Entrepreneurship units. I was even able to base a unit around my experiences working in a summer camp in the USA through Bringing the World Back Home and undertake an internship in Nepal for a Not for Profit Organisation through Professional Placement in Asia! These innovative and outside the box programs well and truly set me up for my career and equipped me with the tools necessary to approach challenging situations daily.

    Fast-forward 2 years I am now working as a Recruitment Consultant. I work in an industry that is constantly changing, and in order to be on top of my game, I am required to adapt quickly to challenging situations and effectively plan strategically. Through the innovative units on offer, I was able to develop a strong set of soft skills and gain a foundation in bigger picture strategic thinking.
