Study Online

At CQUniversity we know you want the flexibility to study when and how you like – which is why we are proud to deliver an outstanding online learning experience. When you take the online plunge with CQUni – one of Australia’s largest online learning providers – you will benefit from the support and expertise of a university with over 40 years’ experience delivering distance education.

Plus, with over half of our Australian students regularly choosing to study online we are committed to providing a quality virtual experience. As part of our response to the COVID-19 crisis, almost all of our students, including some from all over the globe, have joined this online community and continue towards their study goals.

While we deal with the present, we’re also planning for the future. Many of our courses are already designed to allow you to move between on-campus and online delivery so we’re prepared to help you transition between the two when you need to.

Bachelor of Social Work and Bachelor of Laws


I chose CQUni because I knew that, for online learning, it was one of the best. I don’t feel like I’m getting any less of a chance at it than the people who are studying on campus. I’ve got the same opportunities to speak with lectures in real-time, online.

Bachelor of Science (Criminology and Psychology)


Studying via distance education, the video and online learning technologies allow you to participate in lectures in real time. I’ve never felt like I’m an online student because of the community and how everything is online.
