The CQUGlobal Inbound Exchange Program
CQU Global Inbound Exchange Program - Rockhampton Campus
is exclusively for students studying at our global network of partner institutions and students studying at institutions belonging to the International Student Exchange Programs
Through this program you can study at CQUniversity for a term or full academic year and we will not charge you any tuition fees. You will gain credit for the courses you study and subject to your home institutions approval; you can transfer these credits back towards your program of study at home.
Demand for this course is high and places are limited so apply early to avoid disappointment. To apply you must be a current student at one of our exchange partner institutions.
*The CQUGlobal Inbound program is for students coming for a short period, term or academic year only.*
The city lies on the Tropic of Capricorn, 633km north along National Highway 1 from the Queensland State capital, Brisbane. Principal rail and air routes, developed to support Central Queensland's agricultural and mining exports, make Rockhampton readily accessible from within Australia and from Asia.
Rockhampton has a resident population of only 60 000 and is compact and easy to get around, but has the businesses and services to supply the region's 180 000 people.
Nearby beachside communities at Yeppoon and Emu Park, a short drive away by car or public bus service, are popular with commuters and students. The nearby islands of the Great Barrier Reef, and a sub-tropical climate with summer rains and mild sunny winters, attract tourists from Europe, Asia and southern Australia.
