Need a holiday? I know the feeling.
This year was supposed to be my big year of international travel. Before 2020 had even started, I had three exciting overseas trips booked, all my annual leave used, and I was happily researching and planning what to see and do when I got there.
And then, coronavirus. Of course there are many many worse impact of global pandemic, and I’m counting myself lucky in so many ways. But with the first two of my trips (to Japan with my best friend, then Istanbul and Barcelona with my mum) definitely not happening, and the third one (to Hawaii in November) under a big question mark, my calendar and passport suddenly look very empty.
Luckily, travel is my expertise as well as my passion. My research with CQUni focuses on tourism, how and why we do it, and all the ways it impacts our communities. And across Australia, communities that rely on tourism have never needed us more.
Meet two CQUniversity students who have used their passion for regional arts and their study in CQUniversity’s Bachelor of Digital Media to open the door to career opportunities and valuable industry experience.

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.
