CQUniversity Australia

Originally founded in Rockhampton in 1967 as the Queensland Institute of Technology (QIT) Capricornia, CQUniversity was awarded full university status in 1992, and now has more than 30,000 students spread across Australia. CQUniversity is the only Australian university with a campus in every mainland state of Australia.

In 2014, CQUniversity merged with CQ TAFE bringing together more than 175 years combined experience in the delivery of education and vocational training, and establishing Queensland’s first dual sector, comprehensive university. The University now delivers more than 300 education and training offerings, from short courses and certificates, through to undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees, with seamless pathways available between all levels of study.

A renowned research institution and a benchmark leader for how Universities should engage with community and industry, its record of achievement over the past few years is matched only by the ambitious aspirations it has set itself over the coming five years, with a continued expansion of student success, research excellence, social innovation and community engagement firmly in its sights.

CQUniversity’s unique vision, diversity, outreach, engagement, research, learning and teaching, and inclusiveness have led to it being recognised among the top universities in the world and as Australia’s only Changemaker Campus by global social innovation group Ashoka U.
