I was offered a scholarship from CQUniversity. At the end of my first year, CQUniversity found me an internship through which I was offered a job and I've been working there ever since.

I know that wherever I go and whatever I do, CQUniversity has enabled me to become the best version of myself.

I'm really thankful for the support and great mentorship from the internship program team.

I began to learn and discover while working in my internship, and it boosted my confidence gradually. And it met a beautiful ending at getting employed by my organisation and this marked a big milestone not only for my time in Australia but also for my whole life.

We offer a series of pre-university courses such as English language, certificates and diplomas, which provide excellent pathways into our university courses.

We also have partnerships with external providers to offer these pathway options.

If you need a helping hand, our scholarships offer great financial support.

We pride ourselves on taking away the hurdles and we see no barriers to a quality education.

Whichever path you choose, our friendly staff are here to support you to reach your goals.

It’s this approach that’s seen us ranked above the national average for student experience satisfaction.

And, we’re Australia’s first and only social enterprise university and Changemaker campus, which means we’re internationally recognised for building social innovation practices into what we do.

These things matter to us because they matter to you.

Explore our youthful and innovative university and enjoy an enriching learning journey.

      My internship changed my life and career. I received real-life experiences and chances to network. I learnt a lot from senior employees through interactions. I grew more confident and improved my self-esteem. I hope every CQU student takes this opportunity.
