What our graduates say

Aaron Richardson - Clinical Coordinator

"One of the things that drew me to nursing was the ability to travel. Going through my degree, I thought I would I work in the UK and Canada, like many Australian nurses do, but instead I've travelled throughout Australia. I've had so many opportunities through nursing and I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing now if I didn't study at SCU."

Joshua Stephens - Assistant Principal and Primary Teacher

"What the lecturers at SCU showed me was that primary teaching isn't just about teaching, it's about everything connecting and building relationships with students and making the classroom a place that's fun and enjoyable. As a teacher, you get to create your own little business in your classroom. You and the students are on a journey to create a space where you want to be every day."
