Graduating by degrees


Dreams to reality

As student numbers grew, campus life turned from tentative to bustling. For many involved in USC's early success, the University was destined to become much more than a degree or a job.

It was a place where dreams were formed, furthered – and fulfilled.

Over 20 years, more than 15,700 have taken their knowledge to the world. 1,500 didn't stop at one degree.

Find out more about the careers kick-started and the personal passions realised.
