Central Queensland University

Central Queensland University


Established in 1967, CQU has strong academic links with Central Queensland communities and industries, in areas like marine ecology, wildlife conservation (including koala and wallaby research), sports and human performance, and more. A uniquely Australian experience is a guarantee at Central Queensland University.The university's small size, friendly and laid back community, tropical climate, and close proximity to the Great Barrier Reef all contribute to a fun and active experience in ideal Australian landscapes. Students at CQU experience the “real” Australia . Located in the heart of Queensland, you don’t have to travel hours to the Outback or to the Great Barrier Reef to explore and soak in Australia ’s unique environment – it’s all right there.  
 
On the weekends students find themselves learning to Scuba Dive, visiting the Dreamtime Aboriginal Cultural Center , adventure caving, overnight horseback riding, spending the night under the stars, or just lazing by the beach. CQU International staff are happy to assist with planning any activities students wish to experience during their stay.
