Features of the new MyCQU

MyCQU changed yesterday. In just one day we witnessed more than 5, 000 students visiting the portal, and more than 200 students sent us feedback.

Here are some of our favourite comments so far:

Fresh look! Easy to navigate and very motivating!


LOVE it! Very easy to follow and things that you need immediately for the term are displayed very clearly.

Thank you. So much easier to navigate. Only been on for a couple of minutes, has already made me less stressed.

While we’ve seen a lot of very positive comments, we understand that some of you are missing elements that you loved about the old version. For this reason, we thought we’d give you a quick tour and highlight where to find these features.

We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure nothing is missing, so let’s take a look…

1# Student Email

The new design includes student email and search at the top of the window.


Click on the blue envelope to access your inbox.



2# Current and previous units

The old MyCQU presented current and previous units in a tab format. In the new version, your current units are neatly presented on the home page.


More information about these units, including class lists, past exam papers, and enhancements can be viewed by clicking on the unit from the home page, and then selecting ‘My Overview’ from the screen below.


This Courses and Units section also gives you access to all of your current and previous units. Simply select the blue bar at the bottom of the page, to view the full list.

#3 Timetables

Timetables can also be accessed from the Courses and Units section.


As well as from the Calendar icon, found next to each unit on the homepage.


#4 Google Docs

A quick link to Google Docs, otherwise known as CQUniversity Docs, is available from the Useful Links section of the menu.


Not loving the feature image?

In the new MyCQU, you can customise your feature image. Select your profile from the top menu to chose an image.


Now that the new MyCQU has been released, we will continue to collect feedback and consider small changes to enhance your user experience.
