Top marks for Southern Cross University in The Good Universities Guide

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.”
