Elizabet’s life on stage and making dreams a reality

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.

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. I took the opportunity to become a Student Advisory Panel volunteer, not only to add the experience to my resume – by demonstrating my activeness and engagement as a current student – but because I’m also someone who wishes to help shape the future of CQUniversity and its student cohort.

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!

Discover how to get engaged

Take it from me, I know how hard it is at different stages of study and life to keep on top of everything while trying to be an engaged student.

I’ve been that fresh out of high school full-time student, I’ve studied part-time while holding down a full-time job, and I’ve also been that mature-aged student completing part-time uni online, while working part-time AND juggling two kids under the age of three!

Yes, I’ve been all those different ‘types’ of student – and although it was harder at different stages to be an engaged student, it is still really tough at any stage to, ONE – know where to go to find the information I’m looking for, TWO – find out in advance what’s going on to be able to connect with my fellow students at various campus events and online activities, and THREE –  being able to easily access this information on any device without getting a repetitive strain injury from all the clicking and scrolling!

I know what you’re thinking…what does this dribble have to do with anything! Well let me tell you!
