How to make the change to CQU

To help you plan your next steps, we’ve put together a handy checklist that will help you make the switch to CQU.

Discover all your options at CQU and choose a course that aligns with your current course, so you remain on track to achieve your career goals.

Remember, you still need to meet the entry requirements to your chosen CQU course. These differ from university to university, so it’s a good idea to check. You will also want to check the important application dates.

You may be eligible to receive credit for the study you have already completed at your current university.

Learn more about credit for prior learning and use our Credit Calculator to determine what credit precedents have already been set.

Please note applications for credit can only be assessed after you have accepted an offer to study with CQU. Therefore, we recommend submitting your application to study as early as possible.

We believe a quality education can be for everyone – regardless of background, location or life circumstances. That’s why we offer a variety of scholarships that we encourage you to explore as you make the move to CQU.

Using our ApplyCQU portal, you can submit your application to study with CQU. Since you aren’t applying through a Tertiary Admission Centre (TAC), you won’t have to pay any application fees.

    I found my lecturers and teaching staff absolutely amazing. They were so experienced in the fields that they delivered and because of the small class sizes, they could always go above and beyond to make sure everybody understood all those concepts.
