Student Leadership

The Student Leadership Program is an opportunity to enhance your leadership and employability skills, develop your own personal brand, work more effectively in teams, and build a greater understanding of how you can make an impact in your world. 

Regardless of how you prefer to learn, this program will enable you to “dip-in” to engaging and exciting content when you need it. Recognised certification is optional, meaning there’s no pressure to complete the full program, but we know you’ll want to know more about the two qualifications on offer!

Upon completion of all modules in the program, students can submit reflective journals/ blogs and apply to “graduate”, whereby they would be awarded a certificate recognising their participation in the program. Find out more

In addition to the above, Students wanting to undertake the practical component, would need to demonstrate their leadership skills through participation in approved community focused projects. Find out more 

Designed to complement your academic studies, the program will ensure you are career-ready, have an enhanced awareness of intercultural and indigenous cultural awareness and have the skills and capabilities to graduate as a self-aware, high performing employee. Student Leaders also graduate as a socially responsible community member, with the capacity and enthusiasm to address complex issues of the future.

I loved both the layout and the content of this course. I liked how both the videos and the writing catered for more than one learning style - what a thoughtful idea! The TED talks were fantastic, as were the other videos which really emphasised the course content. Well Done! I would recommend this course to anyone interested in building upon their leadership skills.”

Our program is available to all enrolled students of CQUniversity, regardless of location, study mode, or course being undertaken. For more information, please contact
