“Our Discover program connects you as a future student with the people who may one day be your lecturers,” he said.
“Our academics are experts in their fields, with deep knowledge of the careers open to graduates. That’s something we know students are really focused on when they choose their course.
“Not only can you connect with your future lecturers at Discover Southern Cross University, but you will also have the chance to interact with your future peers. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and to really get a feel for how a Southern Cross experience can take you even further,” Mr Roche said.
