Bachelor of Emergency Service
The Emergency Service program from CQUniversity Australia recognises the increasingly complex industry and operational environment faced by emergency service workers plus the economic, social and environmental impact emergencies have on the community.
By drawing on interdisciplinary learning, teaching and research from a range of emergency service related discipline areas, you will extend upon your current qualifications and work experience to explore in–depth a range of key concepts and perspectives.
These concepts and perspectives will come from the areas of safety science, public health, community safety and education, plus management. You will also gain important lifelong learning and transferable generic skills, such as critical thinking and problem solving, which you can apply to a variety of employment opportunities and life situations.
The degree’s flexible structure and approach to delivery allow you to tailor this degree to meet your own needs by combining compulsory units with the choice of minor specialisation unit options.
|Duration:||2 years full-time|

The Emergency Service program from CQUniversity Australia supports graduates to operate in the increasingly complex environment faced by those working in the emergency service sector. In addition, this qualification provides a pathway for those holding Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications and wish to deepen their knowledge, in areas such as safety science, community safety and management for specialist roles in emergency service contexts.
“CQUniversity is not only somewhere that you can learn about your chosen subject but also about yourself. It’s really easy to get on with people and make new friends, because like me, everyone comes from a different part of the world.”

Study your way
A number of our health courses and units allow you to choose between on-campus or online study, while some provide a mix of on-campus and online delivery methods. CQUniversity is an established provider of online study and is able to offer a number programs and units in this mode that have not traditionally been available, such as nursing, medical science, exercise and sport sciences, accident forensics, paramedic science and more.
Up-to-date and industry relevant
Our courses and units are constantly being reviewed and updated in consultation with industry, accrediting bodies and other stakeholders to ensure they are relevant and up-to-date. In fact, our offerings are a response to industry demand for people with specialised industry expertise.
Work integrated learning
CQUniversity’s health courses and units feature work integrated learning, or learning on the job. For some courses this may be referred to as clinical placement.
You may be required to complete course undertakings in real-life workplaces, allowing you to put learning directly into practice. This hands-on, project-based learning is one reason CQUniversity graduates are in such high demand by employers.
Quality facilities ensure learning is delivered in context, taught in a similar setting to real-world situations including exceptional simulation environments. New facilities including state-of-the-art technology for fitness and body function testing offer exercise and sport sciences students sophisticated training. Nursing students have access to fully equipped labs replicating a real hospital ward, while medical imaging and medical sonography are taught from new purpose-built multi-million dollar labs. The new CQUniversity Health Clinic at CQUniversity Rockhampton also provides clinical learning experiences to students.
