There are many pathways to university. An offer on the basis of your high school results is just one.

If you are applying as a school leaver, you may apply with an ATAR through Tertiary Admissions Centres like UAC or QTAC.

If your ATAR is not high enough for the course you want to do, you can complete one of our fee-free pathway programs: Preparing for Success Program (three-month course) or Transition to Uni (six-week intensive course over summer). These are an excellent preparation for university, equipping you with the academic and study skills you need to succeed. If you successfully complete a pathway course, delivered through the SCU College, you may then apply for entry to a range of Bachelor degrees*.

International students can complete an English Language Program or the Undergraduate Qualifying Program which offers academic preparation with the addition of language skills.

Southern Cross also offers a range of Diplomas so you can dip your toes into a new career. If you don’t want to commit to a three-year degree but want a qualification to work in business, civil construction, health, hotel management or science, then our range of diplomas are a perfect choice. Graduates can work as paraprofessionals while completing their study and gain credit into a related Bachelor degree.

* Some courses also have additional entry requirements such as an interview, refer to the relevant course page for further information.
