About SCU College masthead


SCU College offers a range of preparatory pathway programs to undergraduate and postgraduate studies at Southern Cross University.

For international students, we offer a range of educational pathways including English language programs, academic qualifying programs and Study Abroad experiences. We guide students through a sequence of courses to develop English language proficiency and academic skills for success at the University.

For domestic students, university preparatory programs help set students up for success at university. These programs provide guaranteed entry into Southern Cross University undergraduate courses.

We also offer a variety of diplomas to both domestic and international students in different disciplines. These diplomas can help students gain credit towards bachelor-level study as they study in our highly supported environment. These diplomas are suitable for students who may not have the right qualification to enter university in a traditional manner or who wish to complete a university degree in just one year full-time. On completion, students can apply for a wide range of paraprofessional jobs in the industry of their choice while undertaking the second year of their bachelor course.
