I chose Southern Cross University because I love the Southern Gold Coast and couldn’t think of a more beautiful setting to study a Bachelor of Biomedical Science.

I walk to campus from my home in Tugun and I love the smaller personalised class experience in world-class teaching facilities right near the beach.

Southern Cross University has given me many networking opportunities and I am looking forward to my first placement.
