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 Aesha and I come from India. My study journey started from getting a visa grant to landing in the liveliest city in the world: Melbourne.
Being an international student in Australia has been — and will continue to be — a lifelong learning experience. It has not only brought opportunities for me to extend beyond my horizons and enhance my qualification but I have also made some good friends.
Every moment I am here is a lesson in itself because it has made me stronger, confident about my instincts, beliefs and self-esteem level.
From 6 – 8 August 2019, the Social Innovation team ran an amazing event at many CQUni campuses called the Festival of Change. The Festival provided an opportunity to understand current social challenges that we, as students, will face once we kick off our professional careers, and highlighted the actions we could all start performing immediately in order to change the society we live in today.
Hello, my name is Krishna Sen, I am from a small town in Nepal called Chitwan and am currently studying a Master of Human Resource Management at CQUni Sydney campus.
I left home at the age of 15 for Pune, India after schooling for my higher study. I graduated from one of the renowned universities of India, Savitribai Phule Pune University and it was tough for me to decide what to do next. I wanted to do a masters degree but was confused from where.
Then I thought of Australia — one of the most popular destinations for international student and not once have I ever regretted my decision.
On Thursday, 18 July from 12 – 1pm, The Big Idea competition will once again be launching across our campuses. This competition invites students to develop a concept and business plan for a social enterprise or a social business, and compete with other students at participating universities.
Hello, my name is Niraj Thapa Magar, I come from Nepal and I am studying a Master of Management for Engineers at CQUni Sydney.
I still remember those days when my parents used to be unhappy with me because I couldn’t get into any government jobs after my undergrad studies. For them, I should have a stable job, a stable source of income and a house before 30 — but, it’s so funny to say that I am nearing my 30s and I have none of these.
But, I am proud that my parents have always been supportive of my decisions. I wouldn’t be here in Australia without their support. In my 25 years, I have never been abroad before so studying in Australia has been one of the most exciting journeys of my life.
The annual Student Leadership Conference is a life-changing event that will boost your energy, inspire action, and ignite your personal leadership. Participate in empowering workshops, network with fellow CQUni students and staff and be inspired by our guest speakers.
The 2019 event will be held in Rockhampton from 5 – 7 November.
Are you confused by social innovation? Not sure what it’s all about?
CQUni’s Office of Social Innovation invites all students to complete their orientation program known as iChange®*. The program will inspire you with stories of transformative social change, and equip you with tools, networks and creative ideas to drive innovation in your community and your career.
To explain the features and benefits of iChange®, we’ve asked our Rockhampton based Change Champ Monica (pictured) to tell us about her own iChange® experience, and why she’s so passionate about social innovation.
Well, 2018 was an incredibly busy year for us in the Change Champion team! Across five regions we delivered events, activities and workshops for students and staff with the aim of engaging and inspiring people to get involved in Social Innovation.
The Office of Social Innovation has empowered us as Change Champs to be leaders on our local campus, and we are super excited to enable more people to kick-start their changemaker journey in 2019! We are looking for like-minded students to join us, so if you’re interested in creating a better world, contact us at email@example.com
Take a look back at what 2018 looked like for the Change Champion team and our fellow students!
By now, you must have read about my first day at Ashoka U Exchange 2018.
This blog is the extension of my first blog entry and will reflect on Day 2 and Day 3 of Ashoka U Exchange 2018.
Day 2 started with the Changemaker Campus Designation Ceremony where 9 universities were awarded Ashoka U Changemaker Campus. It was followed by four keynote speakers who were Fagan Harris, Sarah Hemminger, Imran Khan and Casey Woods and who discussed ‘Is Empathy Dead?’.
