Everyone has a story. At CQUniversity we take the time to get to know our students so that we can help them on their journey to be who they want to be. With the right support and flexibility, access to facilities and services around the country, plus the motivation to achieve, university can be for everyone – no matter where you come from, or your background. Be inspired and discover the stories of those we’ve come to know.

What’s your story? We hope to be the uni that gets to know you too.

Get to know Julie

CQUni knows Julie

“At the end of the day wanting to make people feel valued for what they’re doing and making communities feel more inclusive is what I want to achieve.”

“I had such a wonderful learning experience during my time at CQUniversity. I’ve been inspired by leaders that have done amazing things in their countries, communities and workplaces and it’s been incredible finding out exactly what it is that motivates them.”

Get to know Sarah

CQUni knows Sarah

“My main motivation is to fill the world with educated young people who are caring and creative.”

“Most of my lecturers are still teaching at primary school so it's good to hear their stories and not just be like ‘back 20 years ago when I was in a classroom’. It's nice to know that most of them are still in the classroom and know what education is like today.”

“It's nice to know that I'm always surrounded by people who are supportive rather than moving to Brisbane and feeling alone and stressed about uni and not having anyone.”

Get to know Isaac

CQUni knows Isaac

“I chose CQUniversity because they were the one place that that offered a course that was broad spectrum, so it covered all the avenues that I wanted to dip my toe into and try out.”

“The staff have been absolutely fantastic. Everyone's been really, really supportive. They're all on the cusp of everything. If you have any questions you know they're always there to help out, night or day, and they've always got an answer.”

“I would honestly say that CQUniversity has really nurtured my own development to the point where I am 100 percent comfortable stepping into any job within the field that I've studied.”

Get to know George

CQUni knows George

“I’ve always been interested in the human body and helping people be the best they can be from a health perspective.”

“I moved for the lifestyle that Queensland offered, and the course that was on offer here was brand new and pioneering in a way, which was exciting.”

“You get to connect with the patients in a totally different way to many other health professions. The trust your patients instil in you as a practitioner is quite unique and very special, it makes you feel like you make a real difference in their lives as well.”

Get to know Jason

CQUni knows Jason

“I’d worked for about 20 years in engineering before realising I wanted to do more. I’d gone as far as I could in the area I was in, so I thought to myself how can I go further?”

“It wasn’t easy to begin with, it’d been such a long time since I had last studied, but it was made so much easier by the lecturers genuinely wanting to be part of my learning experience.”

“For all those barriers I thought I had, the biggest one was myself. I thought it was past my time but it’s definitely not.”

Get to know Hayley

CQUni knows Hayley

“I started out studying nursing a long time ago but it just didn’t suit and I ended up dropping out. In the meantime, I studied beauty therapy and had a few kids but podiatry has always been in the back of my mind.”

“There’s a lot more to the degree than I realised, it’s related to the whole lower half of the body – not just your feet. It’s the way you walk, what shoes you wear, how you sit and what you eat. I didn’t know that before.”
