You’ve looked into studying online by online education, but you’re unsure what it means for you and how it all works.

What you need to know about Residential Schools

As a distance education student studying online, you may be required to attend a residential school to satisfy your unit requirements. A residential school is an intensive block of time spent on-campus that allows students to network with lecturers, tutors, industry specialists and fellow students, while also obtaining hands-on, practical work experience.

On average, residential schools are 2-5 days in length (may vary) and students are required to attend an intensive schedule of classes at a nominated CQUni location.  Residential schools can be compulsory or recommended and are an important aspect of your course.

Dedication to Education

My name is Taylor O’Leary. As of 2014 I became enrolled in the Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood). I applied at CQUniversity as a school leaver in 2013 and originally studied psychology and health in the Bachelor of Arts course.

During this time, my mum was studying her education degree (first year) and I realised that I felt more passionately about her assignments than my own, so changed my career path to education. I am now proudly in my final year of the Bachelor of Education.

Building my career pyramid

My pyramid: the foundation

I like to think of my career as a sturdy, long-lasting Egyptian pyramid which can stand the test of time due to the years of hard work and dedication. I began my university journey fresh out of high school when I enrolled in a Bachelor of Psychological Science full-time. I quickly learnt that lecturers and tutors won’t hassle you to get your work in on time and they won’t be walking around the lecture theatre looking over your shoulder to make sure you’re copying the notes from the board.
