My unforgettable trip to China

My name is Ashley and I am a current fourth-year student in the Bachelor of Medical Sonography and Graduate Diploma of Medical Sonography program at the CQU Melbourne campus. I commenced study at CQUni in 2014 after completing a Bachelor of Health Science on the Gold Coast. Although I was born in South Africa, I moved to Australia when I was five, and now call Melbourne “home”.

In recognition of my academic achievement throughout my studies, I was invited to join the Golden Key International Honours Society in 2015, who partner with ‘Envision’ and the International Scholar Laureate Program (ILSP). I was given the opportunity to explore health care and medical education in a different culture as part of the Delegation in Medicine and Science, hosted by the ISLP in China. The international program offers educational opportunities and experiences to high achieving students in delegations such as Medicine and Science, Engineering, Business, Nursing and Healthcare, and Diplomacy, visiting countries across the world.

As part of the experience, I travelled to Beijing, Xi’an, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Homesickness! A note from an international student…

Home is where the heart is

I’m finally free!

I’ve met hundreds of super exciting people, announced our friendships as “official” via Facebook, sat through some eye-opening/closing lectures in my first few days of university.  Life couldn’t get any better!

Well, it could, I think to myself, if my best friends from home were here too. I wonder what they’re up to right now. My eyes suddenly feel prickly… vision is blurring… is that, a tear? What’s happening!? Is it…homesickness? Continue reading Homesickness! A note from an international student…

We get to meet lot of people and make new friends or rather I should say friends for a lifetime and then leave to our own ways. The first week was slow but the remaining weeks went like a flash.

Thomas profileI have just completed my Master of Business Administration (MBA) program here at the CQUniversity Brisbane Campus and looking forward to graduating in the next couple of months!

I chose to study an MBA at CQUniversity mainly because this is what I always wanted to do.

The MBA program is tailored to allow students to learn some of the key elements required in the modern business world such as strategy, innovation and change management.
