International Students

Welcome to International student orientation. We understand that starting at university in another country can be both exciting and challenging at the same time. The International Orientation Program will help you in your transition to Southern Cross University and to a brand new chapter of your life.

Our friendly staff and student ambassadors will guide you through the whole process and be there to support you every step along the way. Your Orientation is online and delivered through the FYI Module.
