CQUniversity Australia has a unique and interesting history. Founded in 1967 in Rockhampton as the Queensland Institute of Technology (Capricornia) we were among the first to introduce comprehensive distance education in 1974. Between 1978 and 1989, we established campuses in Central Queensland at Gladstone, Mackay, Bundaberg and Emerald and achieved university status by January 1992.
Study abroad students in Rockhampton will enjoy a friendly and laid back community, tropical climate, and close proximity to the Great Barrier Reef. For those interested in outdoor pursuits, there are almost endless opportunities to explore the nature within, from beaches to the outback and everything in between.
