Southern Cross University offers exceptional undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, delivered by highly regarded educators, many of whom are recognised as leaders in their fields.
We are ranked in the top 500 of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015-16 and, in our brief history, have become one of Australia’s pioneers in distance and online education.
Leading the way in distance education
Since our foundation over 22 years ago, SCU has successfully developed a cutting-edge distance and online education delivery platform, with more than 5,000 students enrolled each year. SCU Online was established to cater specifically for those working professionals seeking online postgraduate qualifications to enable them to further their careers, faster, while working full-time.
SCU Online delivers a range of career-focused, accredited postgraduate courses. By offering affordable and flexible learning options, operating 100% online, students have the opportunity to learn at their convenience, with location, family and work commitments no longer a barrier to education.
Our postgraduate online courses include:
Each course has been designed with industry consultation and structured specifically for online study – meaning there’s no campus-based obligations for our students.
This 100% online model gives us – and therefore you – a lot of flexibility. Enrol at one of six times throughout the year (February, April, July, September, October and December), take up to six units a year (each is a seven week study period), and organise your program to take advantage of the peaks and troughs in your own life.
Southern Cross University brings a wealth of experience to online learning. We understand how to incorporate connectivity so you feel engaged with your peers and teachers and part of the Southern Cross community, while delivering other information in a way that you can take away and absorb at your own pace.
