During the application process, you will be asked to nominate if you are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander origin. If you indicate this indigenous status, the Office of Indigenous Engagement will be advised, so that they can make contact with you to make you aware of the support you will receive as an indigenous student with CQUniversity.

Domestic applicants who are relying on qualifications gained overseas to meet course entry requirements must have that qualification validated for it to be used in the assessment process. Overseas qualification must be deemed by the Australian Education International Office of Overseas Recognition (AEI_NOOSR) to be equivalent to Australian qualifications in order to be considered by a Tertiary Admissions Centre and CQUniversity.
