 Southern Cross Student Opportunities Fund,  
 encouraging student success in their academic  
 and career development  

At Southern Cross University we equip our students to live a life they value and to be effective global citizens. We do this by creating inspiring and engaged learning experiences.

Learning lays the foundation for each student’s professional and personal futures, so when an opportunity for further learning and growth presents itself – we want to give them every opportunity to seize it.

The Southern Cross Student Opportunities Fund supports students to have the best shot at realising their career aspirations and taking steps towards realising their dreams.

Collectively we can create real and positive change, one student at a time.

"I am Janine. I came to Australia from Kenya when I was eleven.   

In Africa, we had little time to be bored, however, there were many parts of life that felt unpredictable and unsafe.   

I am inspired to study nursing so that I can one day use my degree to work and care for others in Africa in less fortunate positions than myself.   

I would one day like to work with children, sharing the importance of obtaining clean drinking water, hand sanitation and family planning."

"I am Janine. I came to Australia from Kenya when I was eleven.   

There wasn’t time to be sad about leaving Africa as we only had one month to move. My sister and I were young and just so very excited about being able to go on a plane and travel to another country.   

In Africa, we had little time to be bored, however, there were many parts of life that felt unpredictable and unsafe.   

I am inspired to study nursing so that I can one day use my degree to work and care for others in Africa in less fortunate positions than myself.

 A message from the Vice

 Shoemaker  

"In May I was chosen to attend the 2018 Floodplain Management Australia National Conference - the focus of the conference was ‘Waterways of Success – Developing Flood Resilience in our communities’.

This opportunity came about from the Southern Cross Student Opportunities Fund and the Urban Climate Change Research Network.


What I took away with me was the urgent need to change our approach to floodplain management."
