Southern Cross University

Southern Cross University is a multi-campus university on Australia's east coast with a dynamic teaching and research profile. We have three main campuses: at the Gold Coast in Queensland, and in Lismore and Coffs Harbour in New South Wales. The University is proud of its reputation as a progressive institution, engaging with the communities we serve to create change that has impact around the world. The regions we call home all have unique characteristics as study locations - from cosmopolitan cities, thriving industries and coastal lifestyles to living laboratories of great natural beauty and ecological diversity - all just outside the classroom. Branch campuses in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth operate in collaboration with EduCo. The University also operates The Hotel School Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in partnership with Mulpha Australia. Southern Cross offers a diverse range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in science and health disciplines, law, engineering, education, humanities, creative arts, tourism, business and information technology. Specialist degrees in Indigenous knowledge, marine science, osteopathy, midwifery and psychology as well as a suite of double degrees round out a rich academic portfolio. Our online courses are delivered with teaching technologies that offer interactive and immersive learning experiences. Work placements and developing practical, industry-specific skills are a feature of our degrees, as is hands-on learning in laboratories, on field trips or through real-world projects. The University is home to nine research centres with global relevance, be it marine ecology, flood mitigation, organic agriculture, plant and geoscience or adolescent development. In the latest 2018 Excellence in Research for Australia report, Southern Cross achieved outstanding ratings of at world standard or above in 23 research fields.
