Southern Cross University

Southern Cross University

Southern Cross University is a multi-campus university with locations along the east coast of Australia. We focus on delivering degrees of the highest quality together with inspirational student experiences.

Our main campuses are located on the southern Gold Coast adjacent to Gold Coast Airport, in the heart of the Northern Rivers in Lismore and in Coffs Harbour on the mid north coast of NSW, where the University’s National Marine Science Centre is also located. The University operates The Hotel School Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in partnership with Mulpha Australia and delivers courses at Coomera creative campus, an educational partnership with TAFE Queensland.

The regions we call home all have unique characteristics as study locations – from cosmopolitan cities, thriving industries and coastal lifestyles to living laboratories of great natural beauty and ecological diversity, right next to the campus.

Southern Cross delivers degrees on campus and online, with a rich academic portfolio covering humanities, creative industries, social work and community welfare, health (including nursing and midwifery, osteopathy and a range of allied health specialisations), law (including a suite of double degrees), teaching and education, information technology, business, tourism, science, engineering and Indigenous knowledge.

Southern Cross has been ranked in the top 200 young universities in the world by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2022.
