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 at SCU (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 a similar preparation with the addition of language skills.

Southern Cross also offers a range of Diplomas or Short Courses. Not sure if you want to commit to a 3 year degree but want a qualification that will allow you to apply for work in business, education, health, regenerative agriculture, or IT?

Southern Cross Diplomas and Short Courses are an excellent way to dip your toes into a new career and life at University. Graduates can even work as a paraprofessional while completing any further study. If you want to go on to a Bachelor degree in a connected discipline, you will also receive credit for your previous study.
