Enter a university abroad

Bachelor degree at SCU

In Australia, school education lasts longer than 11 years, so it is not possible to enroll in a bachelor's program immediately after school. First, you need to eliminate the academic difference with the help of one of the preparatory programs (A-Levels, IB, Foundation, etc.). The second option is to study for a year at a university in your native country. Before submitting documents to the university, applicants take an English language exam. The university accepts the results of IELTS, PTE or TOEFL. Applicants will need a subject exam — A-Level or SAT. Additionally, upon admission, an International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma can be accepted. SCU also provides online undergraduate programs.

Master's degree at SCU

It is impossible to enter SCU for a master's program without confirming knowledge of the English language. You can do this by passing IELTS or TOEFL. There is an opportunity to study at SCU via online master's programs.

Doctorate degree at SCU

If you are applying for a doctoral program, you must pass the language exam — IELTS or TOEFL. At SCU, you can get a doctoral degree remotely.

SCU campus

A rural campus is the best choice for those who enjoy outdoor activities. SCU has exactly this type of campus. It is located away from the city, creating conditions for greater student communication and a close-knit community. University students have access to the library. It contains a collection of scientific papers, textbooks and fiction. Not only locals study at SCU, but also students from other countries. The variety of cultures represented broadens the horizons of students and fills student life with all sorts of activities, the purpose of which is cultural exchange.

What to do after graduation

After graduation, you can stay in Australia for another 1.5 to 4 years, depending on the degree received. To do this, you need to apply for a graduate visa — it allows you to work in the country without changing your visa to a work one. Look for more immigration options in our article.
