I’m not sure what my expectations of Australia were when I first arrived, but one thing I know for sure was that I was ready to do anything to survive and make my way through to the other side.
Are you dreading assessment submissions? Feeling anxious any time you think about Turnitin? You’re not alone! Referencing Related Stress (RRS) is a common condition among university students. It’s piling on unnecessary pressure and we need it to stop.

Each term, the CQUni Library hosts a series of ‘Get it Together’ study sessions across different campuses. In Term 1, from Monday, 1 April to Friday, 5 April 2019, sessions are being held across most library locations and online.
These sessions are a great opportunity to meet the experts, seek advice, and find out how to improve your results. We encourage you to attend and here’s why…
Let’s face it– good food and even better coffee is essential in the life of a university student – how else will you get through those gruelling hours of study?
Lucky for you, our student mentors Anita, Marsha, Railala, Yudhi and Bel have investigated the places you need to visit to help get you through your day. They’ve also discovered the online sites you need to have bookmarked so you can check out the hottest student spots – no matter how or where you study!

I studied at CQUniversity from 2007 to 2010, and completed a Bachelor of Health Promotion by distance. I really like the concept of empowering people to improve their health, and using tools such as policy, environments and community mobilisation to achieve this. I think health promotion has amazing potential to improve our health status in Australia and around the world, even though it is under-resourced. There have been some incredible successes over time – think of strategies such as seatbelts in cars, random breath testing, taxation and advertising restrictions on tobacco, and increasing the availability of healthy food in school canteens. The improvement to health from these initiatives is fantastic.
Global Voices is an independent, not-for-profit organisation. Each year they provide scholarships for young Australians to travel overseas, meet world leaders, and engage with international policy making at home and abroad.
A Global Voices delegation will challenge and inspire you. Delegates will get an insider’s look into policy making, and have the chance to express their opinions and offer solutions to global challenges.
This term, Global Voices and CQUniversity are offering two fully-funded scholarships:
- A scholarship to attend the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Forum (Paris, France, 20 – 23 May 2019)
- A scholarship to attend the World Health Assembly (WHA) (Geneva, Switzerland, 20 – 24 May 2019)
Applications close Sunday, 17 March at midnight AEDT. To be eligible, you must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident aged between 18 to 30.
If you are passionate, driven and want to make a difference in the world, don’t miss your chance to apply! Here are our top tips for a world-class Global Voices application…

With so much great footage, we felt we had to recap some of the best content with you. Here are our highlights of Orientation…
