About Program

Are you thinking about studying abroad for one or two semesters? If your answer is yes, then USC Sunshine Coast (USC) has the program for you.

USC’s Study Abroad Program is a short semester-based program, allowing you the flexibility to study three or four courses (36 or 48 units) throughout the semester.

This program is a great option if you have just finished high school and want to study abroad without committing to a degree program. It is also a good option if you are currently enrolled at an overseas institution and only want to study abroad for a short time, while possibly earning credit towards your home degree.

You will be able to choose three or four courses (36 or 48 units) from USC’s extensive course catalogue. The courses on offer are taken directly from within USC’s undergraduate programs, which means you have the opportunity to take classes with the locals and you will have a wide range of study disciplines to choose from.

Yes, I recommend this program


I am loving it here at USC! I started off with a Diploma and now I'm onto a bachelor's. Everything about the campus is amazing. The teachers really care about the students, they are so supportive and knowledgeable. The campus is beautiful and open, full of wild life too. That also have a really good international team to assist the international students.

There's plenty of study spaces and learning resources. So easy to make friends and so many people who share interests. Living on the coast is the greatest! Close to the ocean but still not far away from the greatest hikes I've been on.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
I'm getting used to it now but the kangaroos are everywhere on campus :)

Bachelor of Criminology and Justice

I loved my time at USC. I completed my Bachelor of Criminology and Justice back in 2019 as an international student and was extremely happy with the support I received from the academic staff. I applied as a Study Abroad student in 2016 but decided to extend to a full-degree program which I do not regret one second. USC has provided me with great knowledge and the staff and students support has been fantastic. I can only recommend studying Criminology at USC, especially if you want to improve not only academically within several areas, but also in a practical setting when you get to go on placement your third year.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
The most surprising thing I experienced whilst studying at USC was how friendly people were, and not to mention supporting when you needed any assistance with your studies. I was also surprised to see how green and close to nature the USC Sippy Downs campus was!
