 About us

    Originally founded in Rockhampton in 1967, as the Queensland Institute of Technology (QIT) Capricornia, it was granted full University status in 1992 and was named the University of Central Queensland. The University rebranded to CQ University in 2009 and now has more than 30 000 students. It has firmly established itself as one of the largest universities based in regional Australia, with campuses in Adelaide, Brisbane, Bundaberg, Cairns, Emerald, Gladstone, Mackay, Melbourne, Noosa, Perth, Rockhampton, Sydney and Townsville. Along with these campuses, the University also operates study centres in Biloela, Broome, Busselton, Charters Towers, Karratha and Yeppoon, and delivers programs in Cooma and Geraldton, thanks to partnerships with the respective university centres in those communities.

    In 2014, CQUniversity merged with CQ TAFE bringing together more than 175 years of combined experience in the delivery of education and training and establishing Queensland’s first comprehensive, dual sector university. As a result, CQUniversity now delivers more than 300 education and training offerings, from short courses and certificates, through to undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees. Study areas include Apprenticeships, Trades and Training, Business, Accounting and Law, Creative, Performing and Visual Arts, Education and Humanities, Engineering and Built Environment, Health, Information Technology and Digital Media, Psychology, Social Work and Community Services, Science and Environment, and Work and Study Preparation. As a pioneer in the delivery of distance education, CQUniversity also continues to be a leader in this area with almost half of the current student cohort made up of students studying off-campus, many of whom are based in rural and remote areas.

    Locations

    CQUniversity has many locations; each with its own lively character and range of facilities and services as well as program and course offerings. CQUniversity now offers a more comprehensive approach to education and training and has one of the largest footprints of any tertiary education institution in Australia. This means whether you want to stay close to home or move somewhere new, whether you prefer the bustling city life or the relaxed pace of a regional location, we've got the perfect location for you.

    CQUniversity has 16 campuses including newly merged regional Queensland campuses in Gladstone, Emerald, Mackay and Rockhampton along with existing campuses in Adelaide, Bundaberg, Brisbane, Cairns, Gladstone, Mackay, Melbourne, Perth, Rockhampton, Noosa, Sydney and Townsville.
Other locations for CQUniversity are currently established in Biloela, Broome, Busselton, Charters Towers, Cooma, Geraldton, Karratha and Yeppoon. These locations will be as a mix of Partner Study Hubs, Study Centres and Delivery Sites.
