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 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 Elliot

CQUni knows Elliot

“As a nurse it’s really important for me to feel that when I go to work I’ve made someone’s day a little bit better.”

“The benefits of studying online are mainly the flexibility around your life, you can choose when you want to study. It was very easy for me to transfer between being an on campus student to an online student when I was with CQUniversity.”

“I was able to do nursing practice from Rockhampton to Noosa and then Brisbane. The flexibility at CQUniversity is excellent.”

Get to know Jessica

CQUni knows Jessica

“We need to have 50/50 women in engineering because 50/50 of us are living in the society that we're building.”

“I had tremendous support from CQUniversity, from the academic learning centre all the way through to my lecturers and peers. The amount of encouragement and participation that I had in design projects and my curricular activities was just phenomenal.”

“The single best thing about studying at CQUniversity was the industry placements.”

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 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 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.”
