CQUniversity is one of the most engaged, supportive and responsive universities in Australia. We're focused on making higher education and research more accessible and relevant to all people, especially those who live and work in our region and beyond. Although a relatively young university, we're undertaking world-class research in the areas of health, natural resources and education. We have also been one of the most successful Australian universities in attracting and servicing international students.
Our vision is to become one of Australia's truly great universities through extensive engagement with community, industry and government. We are working towards this by supporting our students along their entire learning journey and reaching out to communities and industry to ensure that we help meet their needs both now and in the future.
We are currently developing new programs in law and medical imaging that will have a direct impact on the well being of our communities. We are also expanding traditional study areas such as health and human performance, nursing, social work, environmental sciences, education, engineering, built environment and information technology.
We were among the first Australian universities to provide distance education, pioneering flexible, mixed-mode study, diminishing the distinctions between full-time and part-time and on-campus and off-campus study. It's one of the many reasons why school-leavers and working professionals from Central Queensland, and elsewhere, choose to study with us. We can accommodate their lifestyle by allowing them to study at times and places, which best suit them.
