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.


theDesk gives you FREE access to modules, quizzes and tools to help with everyday issues and common study problems. To register, all you need to do is head to theDesk homepage and fill out the registration information to obtain your personal login and get started. Read about relaxation, learn how to manage anxiety and complete a module on managing time and setting goals. There are even modules that cover general health and lifestyle topics.


This is a short compulsory questionnaire that commencing undergraduate students complete to identify resources and support that can assist them in meeting their learning goals. It is recommended that all new students complete this survey so that we can be proactive in personalising assistance to suit individual needs.


Student Readiness is a tailored support program with a personalised approach to guiding students through their first term of university study. We understand that the first term of study at any university can be a challenging experience. The Student Readiness team aims to provide additional support and guidance to commencing students. Our focus is on ensuring that you understand the support services available to you, and connecting you with the right people when help is needed.

Academic Learning Centre

The ALC is a 'one-stop-shop' for information, advice and resources to assist you with many of the requirements of study at CQUniversity in four key areas.

The centre provides assistance on a range of academic issues on-campus and online via email and Zoom. We offer generic group sessions, course specific workshops, individual appointments, drop in centres, print and online resources and online support.


YourTutor is an after-hours academic support service that can be found under the Support block in your online Moodle unit. The service is available for undergraduate, postgraduate, research, and TAFE students.


CQUniversity is dedicated to supporting our students along the self-guided journey that is university study. We've put together our Get Optimistic About Learning program to provide you with tools, tips and inspiration to help you overcome obstacles and meet your full potential.


CQUniversity Library is responsible for the delivery of library and scholarly information services to the CQUniversity community. Our mission is “empowering learning, teaching and research”.
