Three Intakes

We offer three intakes per year (Term 1, Term 2 and Term 3). This gives you the added flexibility of starting your studies in March, July or November – whichever suits you best. Many of our students have chosen to study in a non-compulsory Term 3 to fast-track their studies and get ahead sooner.

Advanced Online Learning

We utilise advanced online learning technologies including Moodle learning management system, Zoom video conferencing for meetings and online live classrooms, and other online tools to maximise staff and student interaction. Our online learning capability boosted when we migrated the Moodle learning management system to cloud infrastructure, resulting in a much faster and responsive web experience and consistent user experience for our students. By the end of 2018 our staff and students on average participated in over 3 500 video conferences per month, equating to about 9.2 million minutes for the year and making CQUniversity second in the sector for Zoom usage.

During a real-time lecture, you can use digital tools to ask a question or participate in a discussion, as you would in a physical classroom. Our library expanded its digital reach of services and collections, enabling increased student access regardless of location. Online video Ask-a-Librarian consultation sessions for students are also available to complement services offered in library spaces.

Extensive support

An extensive range of virtual support systems is available to you, including but not limited to the following:

  • extensive electronic library resource collections (over 500 000 eBooks and electronic database collections)
  • online or hard copy study materials
  • recorded lectures
  • study groups and online discussion forums
  • weekend or online orientation sessions
  • access to lecturers and experienced online education mentors.

Our Orientation Online platform is driven by short-form video content, featuring real CQUniversity students and employees advising students on key information such as navigating CQUniversity systems, participating in student mentoring, acquiring study skills, and accessing student support.

Our friendly team at the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) also provides online support through workshops, review of assignments, quick online query and one-on-one consultations with an adviser via Zoom. The ALC also offers resources in a few discipline areas on the ALC Moodle site, such as academic communication, computing, mathematics and statistics and science. Get a comprehensive overview of the ALC services.

Our complete A-Z Guide of Online Study contains all the tips and tricks you need to stay motivated, informed and connected.

I have felt comfortable studying online. I have direct access to the slides while the lecturer performs the lesson. The online meeting software comes with useful features to communicate with the lecturer and classmates. Somehow, it feels more personalised.
