Many of our programs (even those offered by distance education) provide students with integrated workplace learning opportunities, often paid, in fields where practical experience is a major advantage for graduates entering the workforce.
Through programs such as our Co-Op or Degree of Professional Practice (in partnership with hundreds of employers) we aim to equip students with the practical skills they need for their careers by involving them in simulated projects and/or immersing them in real-world situations and work environments.
This innovative program gives CQUniversity students an edge over other university graduates because they have already established relationships with potential employers. Many students who complete industry placements are offered jobs with their host company even before the end of their studies. Employers know CQUniversity graduates are ready to hit the ground running.
Practical studies at CQUniversity programs in education, nursing, biology and performing arts include real-world work experience as part of the degree. While the following degrees offer paid work experience also include engineering, information technology, applied physics, business and accounting (Diploma of Professional Practice).
