Central Queensland University (alternatively known as CQUniversity) is an Australian dual sector university based in Queensland.

CQUniversity Australia has been on a phenomenal trajectory since 2009. Its remarkable growth in student numbers, new courses, new campuses, infrastructure and reputation has seen CQUniversity emerging as one of Australia’s truly great universities.

It  has now firmly established itself as the largest university based in regional Australia, the only comprehensive university in Queensland, a renowned research institution in key industries, and the benchmark leader for how universities should engage with their communities.

It  has more than 35 000 students spread across 24 campuses and locations Australia-wide. The University has campuses in Adelaide, Brisbane, Bundaberg, Cairns, Emerald, Gladstone, Mackay, Melbourne, Noosa, Rockhampton, Sydney and Townsville. Along with these campuses the university also operates study centres in Charters Towers, Cannonvale, Karratha and Perth, and delivers programs in Cooma and Geraldton thanks to partnerships with the respective university centres in those communities.

It  delivers more than 300 education and training offerings, from short courses and certificates, through to undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees. Study areas include apprenticeships, trades and training, business, accounting and law, creative, performing and visual arts, education and humanities, engineering and built environment, health, information technology and digital media, psychology, social work and community services, science and environment, and work and study preparation.

As a pioneer in the delivery of distance education, it continues to be a leader in this area with about half of the current student cohort being made up of students studying off-campus, with many based in rural and remote areas.

CQUniversity is also proud to have the highest ratio of students from low socio-economic, mature age, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, and first-in-family backgrounds. The university defines itself by who it embraces rather than who it excludes, and because of this is widely recognised as Australia’s most inclusive university.

It  has also established itself as a research focused university with many research activities being informed by close collaboration and partnership with industry and community in the regions the university serves.

 With increased employability, transferable skills, job satisfaction and salaries, university study offers a chance to get ahead of the pack in the job market and get the career you have always dreamed of. CQUniversity understand that everyone’s circumstances are different, and it is  committed to making study fit with your personal commitments and learning style.
