"I was always amazed by how realistic the scenarios were, using the simulation dolls and other equipment. There was pretty much no equipment I was unfamiliar with by the time I entered the clinical setting. This has filled me with so many aspirations."

At Southern Cross University we're always looking for a better way to do things, that's why we created 'The Southern Cross Model'. By dividing the academic year into six-week terms, with a maximum of two subjects per term, students are better able to focus, dive deeply into the subject matter and really learn. The content is highly interactive, with real-world applications; and it leaves more time for the other things you love.
