What can I study?
At USC you can choose from over 100 degree programs across 8 study areas.
Whether you are interested in undergraduate studies (Bachelor, Diploma or Associate degree level) or looking to further your career with a postgraduate degree, USC has a program for you.
Study at USC's main campus and enjoy the relaxed environment on the beautiful Sunshine Coast or experience Australian city life at USC SouthBank in Brisbane, which offers many of our most popular degrees.
USC's Study Abroad program offers you a short-term study option. Enjoy new cultural experiences while studying for one or two semesters and gaining credits towards your home degree. *
Alternatively, consider transferring credits from your home degree towards a USC degree. Credit transfer enables you to speed up your studies, 'top-up' your existing degree or even obtain a double degree.
