This program provides an alternative entry pathway into Southern Cross University. The course is suited to school leavers or TAFE students who have taken the vocational strand of learning but would now like to go to university. The course is also valuable for those who have spent time away from the academic environment for family, career or personal reasons and who wish to revise their skills before undertaking a university degree.
Students who successfully complete the Preparing for Success at SCU Program are guaranteed a place in a Southern Cross University course.
