Uni-life @ SCU
The Co-op at Southern Cross University is here for one reason: you! Both Southern Cross and the Co-op are dedicated to and passionate about education, and believe that together we can help you through your studies and your pursuit of knowledge. We believe that when going through university, your stresses and concerns should be as minimal as possible – and we work to ensure that we’re not adding to that! Education is a privilege that we’re proud to be ambassadors of, and we hope that you feel welcome in the Co-op at SCU, from your first day on campus through to your professional career.
Southern Cross University was established as a public university in 1994 after evolving from a Teachers College. Over the years, SCU has invested in research that has resulted in world-class expertise in research fields such as plant conservation, geochemistry and biotechnology. Originating in Lismore and Coffs Harbour, SCU also has campuses on the Gold Coast, Sydney and Melbourne. Through Coffs Harbour Campus, SCU runs the National Marine Science Centre, which provides a space for students studying marine biology, seawater systems, and other science fields relevant to marine life. In 2016, Southern Cross University joined the top 150 best young universities in the world. This ranking is based on their efforts and drive to excel in teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income. In addition, SCU’s commitment to research is evident through the fact that they achieved “at world standard” or above in more than twenty research fields. Further to that, nine research fields were classified as “well above world standard”. This is testament to the effort of SCU’s faculty and students toward making development through impacting research of the highest standards.
