Changing Universities for International Students

Changing university can be an important step in shaping the career and lifepath that’s right for you. At CQUniversity, we recognise that many international students may change their minds about what and where they want to study, and in some instances, completely shift their career direction.

If you are one of those students, know it’s okay to make these changes. There’s plenty of reasons to move to a new course at a new university,  and at CQUniversity we have a wide range of course options, affordable fees, generous scholarships and real-world internships to help make your decision easy. There’s also the possibility that you may be eligible for credits for the study that you have done at your current institution.
