Welcome to Southern Cross University's How to Apply video.

We'll be walking you through the application process for the course you have selected, and explain the various ways to get into University.

If you are still in high school, check out our STAR Entry Scheme. This enables Year 12 students to gain an early offer to study at Southern Cross University based on your school principal's recommendation, before your results are released.

If you have finished Year 12, your entry into Uni is generally based on your ATAR or OP results.

If you didn't finish High School or didn't get the results you were hoping for, SCU offers a number of other ways to get into University.

Southern Cross University offers Associate Degrees and our Preparing for Success program through SCU College, which are designed to equip you with the skills and qualifications you need for undergraduate degrees.

Or if you have a qualification from TAFE or through a Private Registered Training Organisation, you may be able to use this to articulate into the first or second year of a related SCU degree, with credit towards your degree.

Once you have selected your course, applying is easy.

You will need to apply via UAQ or QTAC.

If you are applying to study by online education or you're an international student - you will need to apply directly to SCU.  You can find the apply buttons by clicking on the how to apply tab, at the top right hand side of each of our course pages.  

If your application is successful you will receive an offer via email.  This email has all the information you will need to accept your offer and get you started at SCU, so make sure you keep it handy.

Following your acceptance, the next step is to enrol.   Information about enrolling is available at the SCU website

And remember, you can get in touch with us at any point if you need help.
