Gold Coast campus tour, Southern Cross University

Posted by


Southern Cross University’s Gold Coast campus
has all the features you’d expect of the newest campus on the coast, and a whole lot more. The campus is really vibrant and it’s got
a great youthful feel to it. Contemporary teaching spaces and a supportive
study environment make for a unique study experience. My favourite part of the campus would be the
small class sizes, you just get to build relationships with teachers, lecturers and things like that
and I find that really beneficial. Degrees are offered in areas including arts
and law, education, business and information technology, tourism, sport management, social
welfare and social science, and an expanding suite of allied health degrees.
A range of associate degrees are also offered. Purpose built laboratories provide cutting
edge learning spaces for students of nursing and midwifery, occupational therapy, podiatry
and speech pathology. My favourite part of the building is the new
anatomy and physiology labs, they are really cool and really interactive. The SCU Health Clinic provides health practitioner
services to the public, as well as supporting student learning and clinical research. During the five years of training from the
osteopathic course two years are hands on and you are in the clinic – so that enabled
us to see more than 300 patients during the two years. The pedorthics course is unique in the southern
hemisphere, training students to work in diabetic footwear, athlete performance and orthoses
manufacturing. Postgraduate degrees in business including
the Master of Business Administration and postgraduate degrees in law, the social sciences
and tourism are available at the Gold Coast. My supervisors were always accessible and
they were experts in their field so really enjoyed their guidance in my PhD process. International students are warmly welcomed. Every day there are more international students
coming on board and it’s really cool to be part of that community. SCU is a research intensive university. The Gold Coast campus is home to the Research
Centre for Tourism, Leisure and Work and the University’s Collaborative Research Network
supporting early career researchers. To see more come and take a campus tour with
