SOP – Admissions – Southern Cross University

Statement of purpose

So, you have been asked to write a SOP and you have no idea where to start?

We are pleased to advise that we have created a SOP Guide that will help answer your questions. The SOP is a very important document and it is essential that you prepare it correctly. If you follow these simple guidelines, you shoudl get it right first time.

The SOP helps you not only get a quick offer to the University, but it also helps you to prepare for a possible interview with the Department of Home Affairs when you lodge your visa application. Writing a strong SOP also improves your chances of getting a visa grant because you will be very well prepared to answer any questions you are asked.

You can find our SOP Guide at the links below:







If you would like to find out GTE information about your specific country, you can find it on our online GTE tool.

You can also refer to our “Which SOP do I use?” page to see which SOP template is required for your country. Students from Level 1 countries are generally not required to provide a SOP, however, we may request one if we need further information. Onshore students are required to provide a SOP if their visa is due to expire within 6 months of their application date.
