Information for Parents

Making the transition from school to university is an exciting time for many students. It can also be challenging. That is why as a parent, you have a key role in helping your child decide on what course or study path is right for them.

The following information and links will give you a good idea of how you can support your child in their decision making.

Benefits of a CQUni education

We have industry relevant courses for international students spanning 13 study areas across vocational, undergraduate, postgraduate coursework and research. These open many possible careers.

Our graduates find employment fast and earn more than those from other Australian universities according to ComparED 2021 - Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching. Our students rated us well above the Australian university average in key areas of their student experience in the latest International Student Barometer. Our commitment to education innovation has resulted in our next-level online learning platform BeDifferent, and most recently, the Australia-first Graduate Guarantee program which offers free upskilling.

What's more is that we know the importance of preparing students to succeed in their academic studies. And this is why we are proud to offer FREE English language courses to all students enrolling in a CQUEnglish packaged pathway with an academic course.

What your child will get is more than just a qualification. Look forward to learning from teachers who are some of the best in their fields, hands-on work experience through internships and placements, a truly Australian experience through transferring campuses or travelling during study breaks, enhanced professional connections and job prospects, plus many more.

    I've always wanted to be an accountant because I really enjoyed maths and was interested in economics. Applying to study at CQU was quick and smooth, and I also received credits from my previous studies!
