At CQUniversity Australia, our students choose to study with us so they can be what they want to be. We believe higher education should be for everyone – no matter your postcode or educational background. That’s why we offer a wide range of up-to-date, industry-aligned courses, from TAFE certificates right through to research degrees, online and at campuses across Australia.
Our convenient Adelaide campus is situated to the south-west of the city within close proximity to various forms of public transport and provides our online students with access to a range of support services and learning facilities.
As well as convenience and flexibility, when you choose CQUniversity you’ll benefit from smaller, more intimate class sizes and greater access to teaching staff. We’re committed to student success and providing positive graduate outcomes, and it shows. Data released by ComparED 2020 shows that CQUniversity outperforms most Australian universities when it comes to study support, graduate employment and graduate salary outcomes. This is backed up by The Good Universities Guide (2020), which gives CQUniversity five stars for undergraduate full-time employment, social equity, starting salary and student support.
So, rest assured that when you choose CQUniversity, you’re choosing a high-quality education to help you be what you want to be.

At CQUniversity, we often recognise the skills and knowledge gained from prior learning and experience. You may be eligible for credit transfer (also known as course credits, recognition of prior learning, or exemptions) if you are able to demonstrate appropriate prior learning.
Successful credit transfer will reduce the number of units you are required to complete. In some cases, this may shorten the time it takes to complete a course or reduce the study load per term. A formal application for credit transfer will only be assessed after you have accepted your offer to enrol into a course.
Commencement dates can vary from year to year. Details can be obtained online.
