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 unit 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.

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.
