Meeting the genuine temporary entrant (GTE) requirement

Gold Coast, Lismore, Coffs Harbour campuses

International students applying for a student visa must show that they are coming to Australia temporarily to gain a quality education at Southern Cross University. Each country has its own unique set of guidelines and students who are already in Australia and applying to transfer to Southern Cross University have their own requirements.

GTE requirements may differ by campus. Students applying to the SCU Melbourne, Sydney and Perth locations should refer to this requirements page.

The information provided here is a guide only for students who are applying and does not guarantee a visa outcome. SCU reserves the right to update the information without notice.

To begin, select your student’s country of origin on the drop-down list found on the top-right part of the page. For students already in Australia, please select ‘Onshore’.

Please note that this page is under development and more information for other citizenship countries will be provided shortly.
