What is Breadth?
Breadth is one of the most exciting aspects of the University's undergraduate degrees. Breadth subjects allow you to gain knowledge and understanding across a broader range of disciplines, enabling you to develop insight, experience, and new ways of thinking in areas distinct from the main fields of study in your degree.

Our Planet, Our Health
A new breadth subject, if you are interested in human health, animal health or biodiversity, this subject may be for you
You can study a single breadth subject from a wide range of disciplines distinct from your main field of study in your Bachelor (first) degree. Or you can choose a 'Breadth Track' and follow a specialist stream for the duration of your degree.
From agriculture and food and wine - to animal science and climate change, you can pursue your passion and relate it to your core degree.
The University has developed clear breadth sequences, or 'tracks', that will help you identify coherent groups of breadth subjects and allow you to extract the maximum benefit from your breadth component.
