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.
The CQUniversity Counselling service aims to assist students with any issues which impact negatively on their studies. Our goals are the success of our students in their studies and the promotion of their personal resilience and wellness.
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.
The Student Mentor Program aims to help students in undergraduate and postgraduate courses to feel at home at CQUniversity.
Indigenous Student Support
The Indigenous Student Engagement Team provides support to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. All Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged to log in to the MyCQU Student Portal and ensure that their identity is recognised. This information is in the You view. If your identity is not recognised in the system, please contact the Indigenous Student Engagement team via Indigenous@cqu.edu.au to assist you. For more information, please refer to the Confirmation of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander or First Nations Identity Protocol.
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.
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 CQU Library, Study Smart e-course, and much more.
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 to live on small, fixed incomes. This page contains information on financial assistance programs, budgeting tools, and scholarships.
