    SCU MELBOURNE

    Southern Cross University has campuses in Gold Coast, Sydney, Perth, and Melbourne providing the flexibility of location. Further, there are three sessions per year for additional choices of units for every session. The lectures are online recorded and two-hour tutorials take place on the local campus every week.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The faculty in the Melbourne campus where I take classes are all very professional and experienced people in their respective fields. The unit assessors from Gold Coast, the main campus, give us online lectors every week.

    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    THANKS SCU

    I chose Southern Cross University because it was something different from what my other friends chose to do and also the location of the University is really nice, with the beach across the road and located right near the Gold Coast airport.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The course is good so far, some units are a bit challenging in terms of requiring more study but otherwise, I have enjoyed my units so far and I have learned a lot of valuable skills from my units so far.
