FAQs and Unit Transition Guide: Southern Cross Model in the Faculty Education
Southern Cross University is changing the way it delivers learning experiences to students. The Southern Cross Model is an innovative approach to tertiary education that delivers a deeper, more engaged learning experience that centres around greater interactivity and connection with real world applications. In consultation with our Faculty Executive, Professional Staff and Client Services, we have created an Education Student FAQ document which includes questions received from students about the new Southern Cross Model and the transition to the new courses.
Additionally, this 2021 to 2022 Unit Transition Guide document is to assist pre-2022 Education students with current enrolment and understanding old to new units, based on unit changes and improvements. Students can use this information in conjunction with their Study Plan in MyEnrolment and the Course Progression information on the 2022 Education Courses webpage. These changes will apply to your study plan, regardless of whether you transition to the new course or choose to remain in your current course.
