Student support

University study can be an exciting yet challenging experience. Competing priorities and the day-to-day persistence needed for study require personal resilience and the ability to formulate realistic expectations.  At CQUniversity we offer a variety of support services to assist our students to develop the personal resilience and skills needed to achieve both their academic and personal goals.

Counselling

The CQUniversity Counselling service aims to assist students with any issues which impact negatively on their studies. Our goals are the success for our students in their studies and the promotion of their personal resilience and wellness.

Accessibility

CQUniversity is committed to ensuring that students with a disability or medical condition are provided with access to a range of support to enhance their academic potential.

Student Mentors

The Student Mentor Program aims to help new students in undergraduate and postgraduate programs to quickly feel at home at CQUniversity during their first year of study.

Indigenous Student Support

The Indigenous Student Support Team is located within the Student Life and Wellbeing Centre. We provide support to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students within each of the schools at CQUniversity. All Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged to login to MyCentre and ensure that their identity is recognised. This information is on your 'My Details' tile. If your identity is not recognised, please contact the Office of Indigenous Engagement at indigenous@cqu.edu.au to assist you.

STUDENT ADVOCACY

Student Advocacy is a free and confidential service providing support and assistance to all CQUniversity Australia Students who seek guidance on grievances, appeals and disputes. The Student Advocacy Officer is here to help students understand and navigate associated University policies and processes, and to articulate their issues.

Health and Welfare

At CQUniversity we take the health and welfare of our students very seriously. The information on these pages will connect you with health services offered through our health clinics, as well information on how to look after your general health and wellbeing.

Learning Support

There's a wide range of learning support available at CQUniversity. In this section, we’ll introduce you to services including the Academic Learning Centre, the CQUni Library, Get Optimistic About Learning self-help resources, and much more.

Financial assistance

Ask any student what is the hardest part of being a student and they will often tell you that it is having no money. Undertaking tertiary studies often limits your ability to earn substantial sums of money and therefore students tend live on small, fixed incomes. This page contains information on financial assistance programs, budgeting tools, and scholarships.
