The Study Abroad (CQUGlobal Inbound Program) allows you to undertake vocational, undergraduate or postgraduate units at CQUniversity from any available discipline area and receive credit towards your home award (if applicable); it is aimed at students currently enrolled in a vocational qualification or a bachelor or master degree level course overseas, or those with some previous study at these levels with an interest in an international study experience. You can choose units or subjects and combine them to design a personalised course that meets your academic and personal goals. Alternatively, you can utilise elective subjects in your home course to study an area outside of your major that interests you. You can choose internal (face-to-face) units from any CQU study areas subject to availability at your desired campus and recognising that some units have prerequisites that you would need to meet before enrolling in this course. The Study Abroad (CQUGlobal Inbound Program) is available for students to enrol in one and two terms of study.

Students will normally be enrolled in an equivalent vocational, bachelor or master level qualification overseas and successfully passed units. We also accept students who are not enrolled at a home institution but can provide evidence of successful study at a commensurate level.

Students will normally have an equivalent of IELTS 6.0 or have studied in the English medium for at least two years.

Some units may have prerequisite health requirements.

Some units may require additional checks for security reasons. Some students from countries deemed to be higher risk of visa refusal by the Australian government, may undergo additional checks during the application stage.
