This Drop-in Session will brief you on the new Southern Cross Model, with an opportunity for Q&A with Associate Professor Wendy Boyd (Associate Dean Education) and Dr Lewes Peddell (Chair of Discipline, Initial Teacher Education).
What is the Southern Cross Model?
Southern Cross University is currently rolling out a new innovative model which provides guided and active learning experiences focused on supporting student success. The new model divides the academic calendar year into six study terms of six teaching weeks each.
This allows students to study subjects in six-week blocks, where you have the option to complete one or two units per term. A full-time study load is a minimum of six units and a maximum of 12 units per year, so you can take a term off when you need to, or do more study when you have the time.
Immersing in one or two subjects at once means you can enjoy deeper learning, with greater focus, and fewer competing demands on your time. Assessments are more evenly spaced out during the year, giving you a greater chance of success in your studies. You determine the pace of your studies, with greater flexibility in balancing life and work commitments.
