Southern Cross University Open Day goes virtual for a month

Southern Cross Uni’s Virtual Open Day, which will run for a month, means prospective students can access course information anywhere, anytime.


SIMPLIFYING the ever-changing landscape of events, Southern Cross University in Coffs Harbour has created a virtual Open Day that runs for a month with on-demand tours, presentations, deep-dives into the courses as well as live information sessions and chats with current students.

The flexibility of a whole month is appealing to prospective students because it allows them to access the Open Day when it suits them, rather than scheduling an in-person visit, which for some people out of region means a two or three day visit to Coffs.

Students can look at potential courses and have a think and go back to research more.

Ben Roche, Vice President (Engagement), said the virtual Open Day was the perfect platform to explore study areas, hear from current students, chat to study experts and take an immersive 360-degree campus tour.

“Southern Cross University is making it simple for anyone, anywhere to discover the distinctive courses we have on offer,” he said.

The University’s study experts will provide online chat to offer specialised advice and help.

Current students sharing what it’s like to study at SCU and what they think about their course is also an important part of the virtual offering.

SCU’s academic experts and lecturers will be hosting live online information sessions for courses where future students can ask specific study questions in real time – scheduled for Tuesday 10 August and Thursday 12 August.

“Our lives are increasingly busy and unpredictable yet selecting the best degree and study location can be a life-changing decision.

“We’re here to make that decision-making process easier for you,” said Ben.

“Our virtual month-long Open Day gives everyone access to the best decision-making material in a very flexible way, at a time that works for you.”

The Open Day month is on now, and runs through to 15 August.
