Stephen Colbran
Law professor and Dean of Law

We’ve developed a new degree program that’s really attractive and modern – the Bachelor of Science (Criminology and Psychology). These two fields are such a natural fit and putting it in one degree gives students the ability to combine both fields, and then go straight out into the employment market.

The big advantage is it’s going to be taught face-to-face in regional areas, places like Townsville, Rockhampton and Bundaberg, where it hasn’t been in the past. People would usually have to travel to a capital city to do it. It’s also going to be taught online right across Australia.

Crime scene investigations, analysing crime scenes and profiling criminals are areas of interest to a lot of people. Those who find these fields interesting would, I think, appreciate this degree and set themselves up for roles in fields like protective services, customs, the police force and other government departments, security organisations and in private security.

Beatrix King
Bachelor of Building Surveying and Certification (Honours)

My family are all involved in the construction industry, so from a young age we were on-site understanding how things are built from the ground up. Certification, which used to just be under the local council’s umbrella, had recently become privatised and there would be more job opportunities for me. For me personally, not having to be on campus was a positive thing because I needed to be able to work full time as well. Studying over summer in term 3 cuts about a year off my degree, so I get there faster.

I love knowing the degree I’m getting from CQUniversity is already accredited. I currently work as a building code consultant and once I get my degree, I only need to apply for my license and prove that I have a couple of years’ experience, and then I’ll be a licensed building certifier. So, I’ll have it all.

Dan Hooper
Bachelor of Engineering with CQUni, Graduate Certificate in Project Management and Graduate Diploma of Project Management

I originally completed a Bachelor of Engineering with CQUniversity and it was while working in that field that I realised I wanted to specialise in project management.

I chose CQUniversity because I’d had a great experience the first time around. I needed to be able to continue working full time and study without jeopardising either of those things. The incremental nature of CQUniversity’s postgraduate project management courses was the biggest drawcard for me. At the end of my first year, I received my Graduate Certificate in Project Management. From there, I was able to decide whether I wanted to go on and get my graduate diploma.

I knew studying again was the right choice because as soon as I started my degree I was able to use my new knowledge in my workplace. It enabled me to be a lot more efficient at my job straight away with fresh ideas.

Liam Bromilow
Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Sciences

Sport science appealed to me because it was a way to combine my love of sports with a research and knowledge base. The opportunity to study via distance attracted me. I was able to study online at my own pace and fit it around my family and my schedule, so it was a win-win. I could still work full time and study as well.

The great thing is it’s a smaller university so through all your study the lecturer actually knows your name, and a lot of the course is very hands-on. The lecturers and staff at CQUni were some of the best in the field in exercise science, and that was a really positive fit for me. To be able to speak with them and learn from them straight from the starting blocks was really rewarding. Without their approachability I don’t think the university would be what it is.

Tanya Orman
Bachelor of Arts

I am a Birri and Guugu Yimidhirr woman from North Queensland. I have always been passionate about stories, particularly those with little attention.

I was familiar with CQUniversity as I had visited my older sister and brother who had attended. By the time I began my degree, I felt like I belonged on the Rockhampton campus. The services on offer, namely the Indigenous Unit, made me feel supported and like I was at home.

In 2007, I was invited to be one of the first Commissioning Editors for National Indigenous Television Ltd (NITV). Four years later, I became NITV’s Channel Manager and led the organisation’s transition into the SBS network, and launch as a free-to-air channel. I was one of the youngest television executives in Australia and one of a handful of Aboriginal women in a leadership role in media.

My success is a direct result of my hard work and confidence gained from CQUniversity.
