Welcome to the official CQUniversity Student Blog – CQUniLife. This blog follows the experiences of a diverse group of CQUniversity students from different countries, studying various programs and at various campuses throughout Australia.
Hello, my name is Elizabet and I am studying in Mackay. I was born in Hungary, Central Europe and have lived there my whole life. Hungary is small and not a really rich country, but I am proud of my Hungarian heritage.
I was living in a beautiful middle-sized city with gorgeous buildings and bubbly city life. It was just like those cosy little European cities that you can see in the movies. All my family lived in the same town and we had a great connection.
My schooling and education have always been centered around English language and the arts. I have studied lots of subjects in English and also tried out several artistic and creative activities – from all the existing dance genres through to visual arts and drama. I loved all of it. The world of arts was my little hideaway from the world.
In Term 3, CQUni is delivering a personalised online Orientation experience, giving you more session options and the flexibility to learn about the topics that matter to you.
The interactive and personalised program will connect you with lecturers, support staff, alumni, and your fellow students – all from the comfort of home. Whether you’re a new or continuing student, there’s something for everyone with Orientation Our Way.
With the transition to online learning in Term 1 and 2 as a result of COVID-19, there may have been changes to your end of term assessments. We understand that these changes can be unsettling.
If your teaching team has tasked you with an online quiz, you may be feeling anxious. Being prepared and having a plan for how you will cope with your assessments will help manage those feelings. It will also give you a better chance of success with your studies.

Hello, my name is Orville D’Silva, but most people call me Shane. Ever since I was introduced to coding back in my high school days, I always had a keen interest in web and mobile programming. Thus, I chose to pursue a degree in the Master of Information Technology majoring in Mobile Application Development.
The course contains a lot of essential units you would need as a future web / mobile app developer. Some of these are Responsive Web Design, Database Design, Information Systems, Project Management, Mobile App Development and many more interesting units.
If web dev or mobile app dev isn’t your forte, you have the choice to specialise in Software Design and Development or Network and Information Security and choose electives from a long list of cool units.
Online delivery isn’t the norm for English language teaching with onshore CQUEnglish language students usually studying 20 hours per week in a face-to-face environment. However, CQUEnglish has risen to the challenge of transitioning courses online after 3 weeks of intensive preparation.
At CQUniversity, we know that an exceptional online experience extends to life outside of lectures. As we all do our part to flatten the COVID-19 curve, free virtual drop-ins, catch-ups, and workshops are being held each day.
The Student Counselling team is hosting drop-in sessions, workshops, and a webinar for Uni Mental Health Day. Keep reading to find out more…
