Career change a chance to transform lives

CQUniversity is expanding its Bachelor of Psychological Science, offering the course on-campus in Cairns from 2019.

It’s already popular with on-campus and distance students alike – Cairns-based mature-age student Dafne Correia shares her journey in psychology, and what motivated her to pursue a career in mental health.

I’m originally from Denmark, but I’ve lived in Cairns for 13 years, and moving here seemed like a good chance to go back to uni.

I’d started a Bachelor of Laws in 2014, but while I was studying, things were happening around me that made me start thinking about psychology. I was realising how often the warning signs are missed when people are having a mental health crisis, and how help just isn’t there. And that’s true for everyone, from little children, right up to the elderly. Continue reading Career change a chance to transform lives

A remarkable life – [PODCAST]

Researcher Kirt Hainzer shares about his amazing life journey which led to CQUniversity.

I remember my first trip to Egypt like it was yesterday. I was 7, and I was living in Cyprus with my family. My Dad, a chef from Austria, was working on a cruise ship that made a loop from Limassol to Port Said every week. I remember leaving the ship and being completely inundated with Egyptians selling all matter of goods and haggling to take us on a rickshaw. But it was the state of everyone’s teeth that I remember most vivid. I’ll never forget those teeth. My mum told me that’s what would happen to me if I didn’t brush my teeth, and I’ve kept impeccable oral hygiene since. Continue reading A remarkable life – [PODCAST]

How CQUniversity’s global mobility program, CQUGlobal, can change your life

Had I known that studying abroad was possible when I was at university I would have jumped at the chance to do part of my course overseas.

Growing up my father was in the British army and we moved home and country every 2 years until I was 13. Immersing myself in another culture was a central part of my life during this time, and from aged 9 I would fly home solo to whichever European country we lived in during the school holidays. At University, I didn’t know that Exchange was an option so when I graduated and I realised I wasn’t ready to start my career like most of my friends, I decided to go to Paris to learn French instead. Continue reading How CQUniversity’s global mobility program, CQUGlobal, can change your life
