Why should I participate?
The program allows you to gain an offer into the university course of your choice, before the UAC and QTAC rounds, based on your high school grades and your school principal’s recommendation.

What can I get in to?
Students can apply for 
any undergraduate degree program offered at Southern Cross University.

How does it work?
There are three levels of the program: 
STAR PlatinumSTAR Entry and STAR Pathway.
