My hopes to change lives with fitness

My name is Alisa Roberts and I’m studying a Certificate IV in Fitness at CQUniversity via online education. I’m a mum of two girls (11 and 14), and I run my own business, so online education is the best way for me to study.

Distance education

The freedom and flexibility of studying by online education are the best part. But you’ve got to be disciplined with yourself. I studied most of my course; I had the opportunity to spend one week in the state-of-the-art facilities at the Mackay City campus as part of the practical requirement of the curriculum. They have a great campus with the all the machines and equipment. Continue reading My hopes to change lives with fitness

Why should you choose online education?

So you’ve decided to take the plunge and jump into furthering your education.

In coming to this decision, you’ve realised that physically attending classes every day or several times a week isn’t possible for you.

You’ve got other commitments – a job, a family or maybe you aren’t living near one of our locations.

You’ve looked into studying online by online education, but you’re unsure what it means for you and how it all works.

The start of my career at CQUniversity

I was halfway through my second year of a three-year Health Science course at Latrobe, however, I was driven by the opportunity to study ultrasound and applied straight away. I honestly was not expecting to be successful in my application, but to my delight, I was accepted. Continue reading The start of my career at CQUniversity

My triple Why’s

My name is Aimee Mason, and I’m currently studying the Master of Clinical Chiropractic at CQUniversity Sydney.

Often when I let people know that I study Chiropractic (affectionately known as ‘Chiro’), I either get a big high five or a very blank look.

With many contemplating life after high school or their next career move, I felt I would do my best to address the three crucial WHY’S:

  • WHY Chiropractic?
  • WHY CQUniversity?
  • WHY does it work for me?

Ways to change the world

I was living in Brighton, in the UK, when I realised that I wanted to be a teacher. I had spent an amazing year indulging my fascination with history, travelling to different parts of England, Scotland and France to soak up as much of the culture as I could while I was there. I soon realised that my love of history, and my tendency to share my passion with anyone who would listen, was pointing clearly to a career as a teacher.

I’m now in my third year of a Bachelor of Education (Secondary) focusing on English and history, and although I’m living back in Australia, I feel like my world has opened up even more. The course has led to many new experiences and opportunities for me, and I’ve discovered so many more fields that I am interested in, such as development and wellbeing, psychology and neuroscience. While studying here, I’ve travelled to India on the Reimagining India trip with CQUniversity as part of the New Colombo Program and spent more than two years working on an education research project as a Research Assistant. I also work with CQUniversity as a Student Experience Officer planning and running our Noosa Campus Life events, and as a Student Ambassador, where I get to share with students and parents my genuine love of CQUniversity!
