Be more confident in your studies with the new-look MyCQU

I am brimming with anticipation over the upcoming release of the new-look MyCQU Student Portal, which I helped co-design as a Student Advisory Panel volunteer.

Find and Seek: Tiny Moments

“We do not remember days, we remember moments” – Cesare Pavese

It’s that time of term again. Assignments are piling up, due dates are right around the corner, and there may be moments where you doubt your ability to make it through the term.

You may feel that keeping your head above water is all you can do, so when ‘seeking happiness’ is mentioned you might roll your eyes and think ‘as if I have time right now?! I need to have my head in books, not in the clouds if I want to pass’.

What if I say you’re wrong? You do have time.

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!
