CQUniversity Australia is not like other universities. As one of the fastest growing universities in Australia, there has never been a better time to join the CQUniversity team. With a presence that spans from Mackay in the north to Melbourne in the south, CQUniversity has one of the largest footprints of any university in Australia – and is making an impact just as great.
CQUniversity prides itself on being one of the nation’s most inclusive universities, offering higher education to many who would not otherwise have the opportunity. It also boasts one of the largest proportions of international students of any Australian university. With over 100 different degrees that will ensure our graduates are job-ready, CQUniversity offers one of the best mixes of classroom and workplace based learning of any Australian university. And with more than 50 per cent of its students studying by distance, CQUniversity is responding to people’s need for flexibility and making a difference to more Australians than ever before.
As one of Australia’s most engaged universities, CQUniversity prides itself on its close connections to the communities it serves. CQUniversity’s people are also what makes it one of Australia’s most engaged, supportive and responsive universities. From the dedicated lecturers that teach and nurture students; to the committed and enthusiastic students themselves; and to the world class researchers making a real difference in the wider community – our people, above all, are our strength. With plans to revolutionise its research output and to become Queensland’s first dual sector university, CQUniversity stands at the forefront of innovation, energy and enthusiasm. More than just a motto, CQUniversity offers an environment where people can truly ‘be what they want to be’.
