Why you should study in Perth, Australia

CQUniversity Perth

There are many reasons why Perth is a popular destination choice. There’s the mild weather, pristine coastline (19 white-sand beaches!), award-winning food and wineries, culture and arts, outback adventures, free CBD WiFi and hop-on-hop-off buses that take you around the main city sites… but one of the greatest perks about Perth is that it shares the same time zone with 60% of the world’s population!

How CQUniversity’s global mobility program, CQUGlobal, can change your life

Had I known that studying abroad was possible when I was at university I would have jumped at the chance to do part of my course overseas.

Growing up my father was in the British army and we moved home and country every 2 years until I was 13. Immersing myself in another culture was a central part of my life during this time, and from aged 9 I would fly home solo to whichever European country we lived in during the school holidays. At University, I didn’t know that Exchange was an option so when I graduated and I realised I wasn’t ready to start my career like most of my friends, I decided to go to Paris to learn French instead.

Outbound exchange program in Osaka, Japan – The End

The sad part of an outbound exchange program is that the program itself is for a short term. We get to meet lot of people and make new friends or rather I should say friends for a lifetime and then leave to our own ways. The first week was slow but the remaining weeks went like a flash.

Study Abroad London – My First Week

What a flight it was, from 35 degree temperatures, bright sunshine and warmth to arrive in London to two degree temperatures, cold crisp air and cloudy skies.
