Student Support

One of the main goals of Southern Cross University is to ensure that students get the support they need in all aspects of their student journey.

In this regard, SCU established two important programs that can help students in many of their concerns as they go through their life as international students. These programs are the Student Representatives Council, Unimentors and the Study Buddi program.

Student Representative Council

The Student Representative Council (SRC) is a group of like-minded students whose main goal is to serve as the voice of the whole student body.

The SRC helps empower students by providing an official channel for concerns and issues that the students feel need to be raised to the school administration. Serving as the students’ main communication line to school officials, the SRC is able to maintain a healthy, mutually beneficial relationship between the students and the administration.
