Welcome to Southern Cross University.

My name is Nina and I come from Germany. I love being a student at Southern Cross University because the campus is just great. It's got a really great vibe. The students are nice, the teachers are perfect and I really enjoy my course. It's a very interesting one, I enjoy the lectures.

The atmosphere at Southern Cross University is just great. During the breaks we have live music. You can meet a lot of new students, friends, there is a little volley ball court in the front where you can spend some time. That's what I like love because you get close contact to the lecturers, teachers.

You can talk to them if them if you have an issue. They are always there to help you out and it just feels like a family.

The location of the Gold Coast campus is just perfect, it is so close to the beach. You can go before your studies, you can go for a run in the morning, you can go for a surf, and even in between you can have the possibility of going to the beach because it is just 5 minutes from there. The location is perfect and it saves you lots of time for travelling. I just live very close by - 5 minutes by bike from the campus which gives me a lot of free time as well.

I just love everything about the Gold Coast and the lifestyle here. People are super friendly and the beautiful ocean and sunshine all year round - the weather is amazing, I am wearing shorts and I love it. Winter in comparison at home is just so different.

There are so many activities you can participate in at the Gold Coast. You can play beach volleyball which I absolutely love. I do it three times a week. That's a great solution to meet some friends - I have a great big community not only of university friends but also meeting the locals is a great possibility of doing that. People are really friendly here - it is really easy to get in contact with them.

I love our Uni it is a beautiful place to study and I am just grateful to be part of the family.
