Discover your future path
Not everyone takes the same path to university.
Whether you're coming to uni straight from school, want to change careers, or are still discovering your passion, we can help you get there.
USC students come from a wide range of backgrounds but all share the same goals: to discover their future path, to become the best they can be, and to make their mark on the world. Here are some of their stories.
Dave – Environmental Science
Alex – Criminology and Justice
Tash – Creative Writing
Keiran – Biomedical Science
Jenna – Nutrition and Dietetics
Brendon – Sport and Exercise Science
Brendon tried an apprenticeship, enrolled in another degree, worked as a personal trainer and even applied to be a police officer before he found his passion for health and exercise science.
Nathan – Biomedical Science
After a few failed attempts, Nathan wasn't sure he was cut out for university – until a chance invitation to a friend's graduation inspired him to try again.
Lachlan – Paramedic Science
Lachlan wanted to be a farmer until work experience in Year 12 inspired him to study healthcare. He was told he wouldn't make it at uni – but now he's on his way to qualifying as a paramedic.
Mitch – Urban Design and Town Planning
Mitch used the Headstart program to study at USC in Year 11 – which is how he found out he didn't want to be an engineer.

Makeup artist and former photography studio manager Vanessa loved people and business – which inspired her to study organisational psychology.
