Students rate Southern Cross University’s personalised and engaging support as one of the best reasons to study there, according to the latest Good Universities Guide.
The university’s five-star student support rating was achieved in four fields of study: agriculture and environmental studies; humanities, culture and social sciences; psychology; and law and paralegal studies.
Southern Cross University’s vice chancellor, Adam Shoemaker said: “These five-star results in The Good Universities Guide come on the back of our Times Higher Education ranking as one of the Asia-Pacific’s top 100 universities.
“Southern Cross University is absolutely committed to providing engaged learning experiences and meaningful employment outcomes for students, so I am delighted our efforts have been recognised in this way.”
When it comes to employment outcomes, Southern Cross graduates earned a higher starting salary than the national average, with graduates from agriculture and environmental studies (includes degrees in environmental science, marine science, and forestry) earning the best starting salary ($60,000 compared to $53,000) in the country.
“These great results are underpinned by our extraordinary learning environments – from high tech health laboratories to scuba diving to drone flying, all integrated into undergraduate courses,” said Professor Shoemaker.
“Our students enjoy outstanding work-related learning and international educational opportunities, with many courses offering the chance for internships, work placements and studying abroad.”
