Southern Cross University is hosting an open day for all students on Saturday, 28 July at its Lismore campus, or you can visit their stand at the Lismore Aviation Expo on Sunday, 29 July.

The open day coincides with the All About Aviation education day at the Lismore Aviation Centre, making it an excellent day for all prospective students, from school to mature age, to see what is out there and what inspires them.

Whether it’s taking to the skies as a commercial airline pilot or delving the oceans deep as a marine biologist, becoming a human rights lawyer or obtaining a masters in surfing, Southern Cross University can help you turn a dream into a reality.

“We are thrilled to have Southern Cross University as a major sponsor of this year’s Lismore Aviation Expo. We have a really big aviation education and training industry in Lismore and I think Southern Cross is a great fit for this event,” Business Development Coordinator Danielle Hanigan said.

“The Southern Cross University open day is a great chance to visit the campus and take a look at the facilities, layout and services on offer. You can also come out to the All About Aviation education day and even take a discovery flight! We have a limited number of these flights on the day, so be sure to book so you don’t miss out.”
