Southern Cross University - Gold Coast Campus Overview
From our very beginning, we have been a University to challenge convention. Emerging from the richly-diverse regions of the Northern Rivers, Coffs Harbour and the Gold Coast we have grown to now connect with more than 75,000 alumni around the globe. We are proud of our regions, of the opportunities we give to students who might be the first in generations to attend university and to the growing number of Indigenous students who choose Southern Cross.
We pay tribute to the high achievers, several of whom have received the prestigious New Colombo Plan Scholarships, and those who have gone on to lead their businesses and organisations. You will be inspired and supported by people who share your ambitions to achieve personal success while having a positive impact on the world. We hold true to the values of excellence, boldness, trust and accountability. Threading through the entire Southern Cross experience is a deep sense of caring – for each other, for our communities, for our planet and for our futures.
