There are many options when it comes to getting help with your university expenses. Scholarships, in particular, are an excellent way to make university a possibility and help you achieve your academic dreams.
It is a common misconception that scholarships are purely academic based. Often, people tend to think if they haven’t scored the perfect marks, there is no bother in applying. However, a lot of scholarships are merit-based and there’s a much broader scope than people might think. There are many scholarships available ranging from assisting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and aiding women studying non-traditional fields to supporting regional students.
Witches, ghouls and ghosts may haunt the minds of many when the word ‘October’ first pops into mind. However, the statistics of workplace health and safety can be much more harrowing than a Halloween horror house.
While most Australian employees return home after the working day, unfortunately, approximately 198 die each year as a consequence of workplace incidents. Over 111,200 serious claims are made each year. These deaths and injuries have a detrimental and personal impact on staff and their families, with substantial financial cost to the Queensland public.
This October, CQUniversity supports Safe Work Month and the event’s effort to make workplaces safer. This year the theme is “a moment is all it takes.” While it only takes a moment for a workplace incident to occur, there are measures you can take to learn about the risks and hazards to avoid these incidents.
In regards to this, CQUniversity offers many pathways if you are looking to learn more about the health and safety industry or upgrade your skills:
