“The north coast offers world class marine research facilities with pristine beaches on our doorstep. Studying local has given me the opportunity to enjoy this coastal paradise yet travel and be involved globally, in more ways than I ever imagined.”

Katie Wainwright – Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Education (Secondary) student

“I wanted a quality education but at a smaller campus that feels more personal, and where I could take classes online but also easily access the campus when I needed to.”

Isaac Hawkins – Bachelor of Business, Bachelor of Laws student

“When I was in grade 11 I took a trip to the Supreme Court which really inspired me to learn more about the legal system and one day I want to work in corporate or contract law and start my own business to help others and make a change in the world. I’m now in my second year of study and I’m really glad I decided to study at Southern Cross University Gold Coast campus. It’s got the perfect balance of the beach style, high academic standards, and staff who are so student driven and want to see us succeed.”

Alyssa Burness – Bachelor of Laws and Creative Writing student

“I definitely made the right decision in choosing to study at Southern Cross after finishing grade 12. I really enjoy my unique double degree in law and creative writing, and especially being in smaller class sizes where the teachers really know you. While it’s been an interesting year studying all our classes online, I’m glad our lecturers have kept the learning engaging and are so invested in our success.”
