    Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Diploma of Professional Practice
    I chose CQUniversity because they had a brilliant reputation for their engineering degree. The 48 weeks paid placement was a big selling point that gave me a huge head start in my career, and all the while I got to stay in my hometown.

    I found my lecturers and teaching staff absolutely amazing. Because of the small class sizes, they could always go above and beyond to make sure everybody understood the concepts and they were quick with answering questions. I don't know how many times I went to their office and just asked for help, and they knew who you were because they see you every week.

    I think the thing I enjoyed the most was getting to work so much with my peers. Over the 4.5 years I built really good bonds with them, and it helped having like-minded people studying the same thing and being able to work through those things together.

    Graduate Diploma in Paramedic Science (Critical Care)
    I was working as an advanced care paramedic and aiming to increase my skillset to being a critical care paramedic. I chose to upskill through CQUniversity because of the flexible delivery options because I was working out West at the time.

    Because I was working an eight-on six-off roster, the flexibility of learning online was what I needed. I could work it around my work shifts, and also around my children and being back at home, so it enabled me to continue studying full time while working full time.

    The best thing about studying at CQUniversity was the ease of access to information and lecturers and how relevant the information was. It was also good to have a residential component, allowing me to hone in on practical skills that would be required as well, and to get to know people who are in my cohort.

    Bachelor of Oral Health
    I chose CQUniversity as it cares about the relationships, growth and opportunity for its students. You are not just a number, but part of an inclusive and supportive community.

    The faculties and the teaching staff make it easy to study at CQUniversity. The lecturers and staff in my course are all very helpful. They ask you how you’re going with the workload and are always making themselves available for you if you need anything. I find that you can ask as many questions as you like without fear of embarrassment. I have felt very supported in achieving my goals at CQU. Whether that be the support of my lecturer or my peers, there has always been help wherever I go.

    The best thing about my course is the practical side – being able to train your hand to be able to hold small instruments and working in a confined space.
