Why students put us first

Our graduates find employment fast and earn above average starting salaries, as evident in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2020, the Good Universities Guide 2020 and the Quality Indicators of Learning and Teaching.

But it is more than just excellent graduate outcomes that make us the first choice for thousands of international students. Find out how or read on to discover why students continue to put us first.

Our reputation as an inclusive university is defined by our commitment to providing a quality education to all and putting in place the comprehensive support system that helps us achieve this. One aspect of this support is our provision of scholarships as a form of recognition of merit as well as financial aid to thousands of deserving students.

Scholarships during COVID-19

All international scholarships require you to study physically on a CQUni campus in Australia. Whilst entry to Australia is closed, we believe the right to education and financial support remains. If you meet all other terms and conditions, and would like to study on campus in Australia, we will work with you to enrol you online first, then transition you to on-campus enrolment once entry to Australia is open.

Relevant work experience is sought for and valued highly by employers in every field. Our courses are designed in a way that allows for some form of work-integrated learning to help you meet employer demands.

We have unique internships that are available exclusively to international students at no additional cost and no extension to the duration of your course. This 10-12 work experience will equip you with the sought-for skills that employers want, giving you a competitive advantage in the job market.

Apart from work experience, being able to expand your professional networks is also key in enhancing your career prospects for years to come.

In addition to being fully recognised and accredited in Australia and globally through the Australian Qualifications Framework, many of our courses are also accredited by relevant professional bodies, giving you the eligibility to join these networks of like-minded practitioners all over the world. This is a perfect for knowledge sharing and keeping abreast of opportunities that will help propel your career to the next level.

As you start on this new journey, we want to provide you with a safe and supportive environment to understand your individual needs. Regardless of your study location, online or on campus, we remain committed to helping you gain an academically, culturally and socially enriching experience.

Our student feedback from the latest International Student Barometer (ISB) survey shows that we soared above sector average, achieving 90% or above for students' arrival experience, support service received, learning experience and living experience.

Right from your first year at university, regardless of your mode of study, you will have access to an extensive range of career support and counselling services and tools to help you plan and achieve your career goals.

Our career services are some of the best in a university setting, with regular career support workshops and other careers focused services including CQUni Career Connection, CQUni Careers and CareerHub to help you plan your career, prepare yourself for the workplace and most importantly find a job in your chosen field.

Because of all the opportunities provided by CQUniversity, I have now procured a part-time HR officer job. I am glad I decided to study at CQUniversity. I would advise future students to make complete use of the facilities and opportunities that the University provides.
