Speech pathology can give people a voice

“The teachers help to support the students at Southern Cross in all the degrees, especially speech pathology. Having small classes you’re able to have more one-on-one time, unlike going to a bigger uni.”

Why study at Southern Cross University?

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.
