Video Transcript: Steffen from Germany

Living close to Byron Bay has provided, Steffen with a good study, lifestyle balance. His location also allows him to make the both of our Gold Coast and Lismore campuses where he enjoys the small class sizes and the interactive format at Southern Cross University.

I quite enjoyed studying at Southern Cross University. I recently finished my Bachelor in Accounting and I enjoyed the small class sizes.  They were always really interactive and great support from the tutors and lecturers and now I'm about to complete my honours.

And also the academic support in completing this research thesis is quite amazing my supervisors are really switched on really helpful.

I'm feeling confident with my honours degree that I can progress to the next step and do my PhD. Hopefully at Southern Cross University.

Living close to Byron Bay is quite an amazing thing to me. I'm close to the beach. I can go scuba diving. If I feel like it I can go surfing or just for a beach walk and it really gives me good study and lifestyle balance.

It's only about 40 minutes to the Gold Coast campus and I can just drive onto the highway and I'm pretty much there. There's never a rush hour on the highway, it's always free it's perfect. Yeah the Gold Coast campus is quite modern and you can see the beach and it's literally 300 metres from the beach so if you need to study break it just walk to the beach go for a swim and you're refreshed.

It's quite convenient for me to come here to listen or to use the facility here such as the library and it's quite relaxed learning environment and I've got all the facilities I need. Computers, research facility, databases.

Studying at Southern Cross University was a quite unique experience for me.

It certainly improved my English and I also got a lot more confident and the study life balance as I mentioned before is quite unique and it helped me definitely, getting through my degree.
