We are living through uncertain times and that unpredictability is felt most acutely by students completing their Year 12 studies; those who have recently finished school; and mature learners looking to upskill or reskill to ensure their ongoing job security and wage growth. But there is a clear, fee-free, pathway available.
Southern Cross University is offering current Year 12 students, recent school leavers and those looking to upskill an opportunity to guarantee their place at university in 2020/2021.
Transition to Uni is a free, intensive preparatory course designed for current ATAR-eligible Year 12 students, recent school leavers and mature learners.
The course is delivered online and has start dates in April, July and August in 2020. Students can study full-time (four-to-five sessions per week) or part-time (two-to-three sessions per week) to suit their needs. Classes are live-streamed from 3:30pm – 5:30pm, Monday to Thursday, with assessment preparation classes on Fridays.
The full-time intensive program is a six-week course. The course develops the key academic literacies and the foundational scientific and quantitative concepts you will need at university, through project-based learning, streamed interactive workshops and assessment preparation. You can proceed to a degree with the confidence you are ready to succeed in your university studies.
Passing the Transition to Uni program will guarantee you entry into all Southern Cross University undergraduate degrees* in 2020/2021.
This course consists of two core units:
- Academic Literacies
- Scientific and Quantitative Concepts.
Assessment is through quizzes, in-class assessments and extended writing or problem solving tasks. No exams are given in this course.
Students will experience a variety of teaching approaches including lectures, tutorials, online activities and video-linked or podcast virtual classes. The method of teaching may vary from unit to unit.
This is a pathway course to an undergraduate degree. Your career opportunities will be linked to the undergraduate course you choose after you successfully complete Transition to Uni.
