A typical three year university degree requires you to complete 24 units of study. These units are usually comprised of core units and elective units. Through Head-Start you will have the choice to study one of two units. Both units have been selected as they can be used as core units or elective units within a large number of courses offered by Southern Cross University. The options available for study in 2014 are Communication in Organisations and Human Physiology.
