[Adam Shoemaker] Well we couldn't wait for this it's been more than a year in the making and in fact today is the big day where we launched two new degrees in absolute partnership with Gold Coast TAFE Queensland and they're actually in contemporary music and multimedia as well so really interesting degrees and a great place for a really go-to location.
[Karen Dickinson] The facilities are fantastic as I think Adam was saying earlier they are really state-of-the-art facilities there's a whole range of different production rooms the equipment it really is outstanding.
[Adam Shoemaker] I love the word creative and creativity. Creative industries as you know one of the great 21st century success stories think of film think of the new versions of multimedia think of streaming think of composition in music for computer gaming, think of all the options behind in studios and consoles this is the whole array of creativity that's here it isn't just behind the microphone it's the brains behind the operation and that's what we're on about with - our degrees of the highest quality and employability.
[Harry J Hart] I've loved it so far just like so much just and I've made some great friends being surrounded by like-minded people.
[Melissa Rossouw] So I've decided to enrol in the Southern Cross music program because I've really enjoyed working in the diploma here and it just made me realize that I want to become a live sound engineer and I've heard from many people that it's a great experience at Southern Cross University so I thought it'd be a great way to go.
[Karen Dickinson] We have a large cohort of diploma students and we're providing them that opportunity to be able to study with a really reputable wonderful organisation in Southern Cross University and they can do that study on the Gold Coast.
