How to apply - High School Students

There are a number of different entry methods for high school students applying to study with Southern Cross University. Most year 12 students take advantage of our fantastic STAR Early Entry program but if you miss out or are applying for a teaching or midwifery degree you will need to apply through either UAC or QTAC to study with SCU.

STAR Early Entry


Secure a place at Southern Cross University ahead of the pack and before your Year 12 results are released.

STAR Early Entry enables Year 12 students to gain early admission to Southern Cross University on the basis of their school principal's recommendation. STAR Early Entry matches an individual student to a particular SCU course based on their likelihood of success in their chosen discipline.
