Our degrees are offered across a broad range of disciplines, and are designed in consultation with industry. Many involve work placements and internships and other forms of hands-on learning to produce work-ready graduates. Research is undertaken in areas that are regionally relevant and globally significant, in disciplines as diverse as geoscience, plant genetics, cetacean research, health and wellbeing and tourism.

SCU History

Our story

1994 - 2014 was an exciting time for Southern Cross University as it evolved from what was a Teachers College, in the 1970s, into a fully-fledged University with its own identity in 1994.

As part of our 20 year celebrations, we developed a series of stories, historical information and personal recollections. These include a condensed Brief History of SCU from Teachers College to University. We've also included some expanded descriptions of distinct five-year periods describing the University's history over two decades: 1994 – 1998, 1999 – 2003, 2004 – 2008 and 2009 – 2013.

We've sourced stories from graduates, staff and local organisations, and there is a list of Chancellors and Vice Chancellors who have served the University and been instrumental in shaping the direction of the University. Also included is a history of research at SCU and a history of international students at SCU.
