Graduate Guarantee

At CQUniversity Australia, we pride ourselves on having some of the best graduate outcomes in the country. We believe it’s our approach to providing practical, industry aligned degrees that have seen us achieve this success, but we won’t rest until all of our graduates are able to land their dream jobs.

This is why we’ve introduced our Graduate Guarantee – a peace of mind warranty that now comes with every undergraduate level CQUniversity degree.


If you’re a CQUniversity graduate and haven’t secured either a part-time or full-time job within your field of study within six months of issue of your degree, you will be eligible to apply for a Graduate Certificate in Leadership and Entrepreneurship at no cost.

The Graduate Certificate in Leadership and Entrepreneurship is offered through our BeDifferent platform, is available entirely online and if you’re eligible you will have up to 12 months to complete your free study.
The course provides a general grounding in modern business and leadership practice, units include:

  • Disruption, Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • People, Leadership and Culture
  • Social Innovation
  • Strategic Marketing.


The Graduate Guarantee is available for both domestic and international students, onshore and offshore.
