CQUniversity is one of Australia’s leading providers of quality distance education. Distance Education allows you to fit study into your lifestyle, whatever your needs. The advantages of distance education include the ability to study in your home country and your own environment; to remain in your job, maintaining an income while you study as well as study time that can be scheduled to fit in with your other commitments, such as family or work.
CQUniversity Australia's purpose and future is based on our ability - through local relevance, regional commitment, national leadership and international standing - to help our students be what they want to be.
Working in this way, we achieve greater results for our students, our graduates and their employers, and for our community and industry partners. At the heart of all of our activities is our focus on helping our students achieve their goals, whatever their stage in life, or their background.
CQUniversity Australia is entrusted with a regional mission and plays an active role engaging with the development of the economic, social and culture of surrounding communities. Many people contribute to what we do, helping define the character, role and expectation of CQUniversity within the region. We strive to be a driver for local growth and prosperity or a catalyst for regional development - a place for innovation and reinvigoration.
