The course includes classroom lessons as well as exciting off-campus educational, social, and cultural excursions.

Want to study overseas?

Do you want to study overseas for a year, term or even just a short while at one of our Partner Universities, or any university in the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP) network?

The CQUGlobal Outbound Exchange Program allows you to study for a term or academic year at one of our partner institutions while remaining enrolled at CQUniversity. In most cases you will be able to combine study and travel without extending the total duration of your study! The CQUGlobal team also connects you with special overseas programs – like cultural tours!

Sometimes, you can even gain credit for the courses you study and transfer these credits back to your CQUniversity program. Your chosen courses will need to be approved by CQUniversity before you go.

Why should you study overseas?

An exchange or cultural tour can be a life-changing experience and will not only help you develop your intercultural intelligence and communication skills, but also give you a competitive edge in the global job market when you graduate.

It will give you the opportunity to;

  • Undertake studies in unique and exciting courses not offered at CQUniversity.
  • Forge international links and develop a global network of contacts for your professional future as you make life-long friends with people from other parts of the world.
  • Learn more about yourself and your capabilities while you gain self-confidence.
  • Immerse yourself in a new culture
  • Improve your foreign language skills or learn a new language.
