Market and Promote Linkages and Pathways

most current linkage or pathway arrangements 

Approximately half of Southern Cross University's students have successfully undertaken learning elsewhere on their path to University. It's just one reason why we colaborate with other organisations to:

  • develop media campaigns that promote student pathway opportunities and testimonials;
  • implement seamless co-offer and transitional support processes for pathway students;
  • promote pathway options and benefits to the wider community through our publications, industry partnerships, visiting secondary schools and at careers expos and open days; and
  • refer to pathway arrangements when guiding students to plan and diversify their study and career options.
