Be supported anytime, anywhere

What does ‘to feel supported by your university’ mean to you?

For me, it is about knowing that I am supported by different parts of the university, not just the teaching staff, during my online learning journey, given it is so easy to feel isolated.

The new-look MyCQU Student Portal will make that support even stronger, by providing content and guidance that is personalised, relevant and timely, based on my needs.

How do I know? I am a Student Advisory Panel volunteer and co-designed the mobile-first platform with CQUniversity. It was a very interesting experience!

Discover how to get engaged

Take it from me, I know how hard it is at different stages of study and life to keep on top of everything while trying to be an engaged student.

I’ve been that fresh out of high school full-time student, I’ve studied part-time while holding down a full-time job, and I’ve also been that mature-aged student completing part-time uni online, while working part-time AND juggling two kids under the age of three!

Yes, I’ve been all those different ‘types’ of student – and although it was harder at different stages to be an engaged student, it is still really tough at any stage to, ONE – know where to go to find the information I’m looking for, TWO – find out in advance what’s going on to be able to connect with my fellow students at various campus events and online activities, and THREE –  being able to easily access this information on any device without getting a repetitive strain injury from all the clicking and scrolling!

I know what you’re thinking…what does this dribble have to do with anything! Well let me tell you!

Be part of our R U Ok? Day video

R U Ok? Day has become a national call to action to empower people to connect in supportive ways. This year it’s happening on Thursday, 10 September.

As a part of R U Ok? Day, we are asking you “How Do You Say Are you okay?” and how do you reply when asked that question? We want to share the ‘real ways people ask if others are okay’.  We recognise the complexity and sensitivity of mental health and that it’s often not a simple ‘are you okay?’ with a yes or no response.

We are compiling a video that will share student voices. Keep reading to find out more!
