Southern Cross University is a vibrant, contemporary Australian university with beautiful campuses at the Gold Coast, Lismore, Coffs Harbour and Sydney.

The University also operates The Hotel School Sydney in partnership with Mulpha Australia. From 2014 Southern Cross University will expand its Sydney operations opening a new branch campus. SCU Sydney will operate from Phillip Street, in the heart of Sydney's central business district.

We welcome students from more than 80 countries throughout the world and offer undergraduate and postgraduate courses in an inspiring and supportive learning environment. The University has a strong student focus and takes pride in the quality of its lecturers, many of whom are recognised as leaders in their fields.

Our degrees are offered across a broad range of disciplines, and are designed in consultation with industry. Many involve work placements and internships and other forms of hands-on learning to produce work-ready graduates. Research is undertaken in areas that are regionally relevant and globally significant, in disciplines as diverse as geoscience, plant genetics, cetacean research, health and wellbeing and tourism.
