In times of challenge and uncertainty, we understand that students might be confused about how you would study on campus at CQUniversity whilst entry to Australia is closed. Our response is to stay committed to making education accessible and providing alternative arrangements. So, whilst entry restrictions are in place, you can:

  1. Start your course online first, then transition to studying on a CQUni campus once entry to Australia is open; or
  2. Study one of our online courses entirely online without coming to Australia.

With our strong history in delivering online education, you can study online with 100% confidence. Our technology driven learning environments continue to evolve, allowing for a much faster and responsive online learning experience for our students anywhere in the world anytime.
