For many people the prospect of undertaking study is fraught with angst. Self-doubt may include ‘am I smart enough’? Perhaps you didn’t finish school, or maybe it’s been a long time since you put yourself to the test in an academic environment.

At CQUniversity we discuss these concerns with people every day. Our role is not to just test students and issue qualifications, but to help them become confident, job-ready candidates, so they can reach their full potential.

A TAFE course is a great way to start your tertiary journey, offering students the opportunity to obtain skills and knowledge to join or re-enter the workforce. TAFE courses also provide working professionals with an opportunity to upskill. As the official TAFE provider for Mackay, CQUniversity has the know-how and facilities to ensure that you are supported in your studies and that when you complete your course, you graduate with a nationally-recognised qualification from a highly-regarded educator.

The first step in your journey is to apply for a CQUni TAFE course. If you are unsure which course is right for you, contact us to discuss your options. From providing advice around the time required to complete a course, to government subsidies that are available that may reduce the cost of your study, and assisting with the enrolment process – our team is there to help you from start to finish. CQUni TAFE will assess your current abilities and recommend the right level of study for you. If additional training is required in literacy, numeracy or computer skills, options will be suggested.

To start your conversation with CQUni TAFE, call 13 27 86 or visit us at the CQUniversity Mackay City or Ooralea campus. By visiting a campus, you can also check out the great facilities available to all of our students, including computer labs, the library, and common rooms. The CQUni TAFE Careers expo is also coming up on Wednesday, 19 January at the Mackay City campus from 2.00pm – 5.30pm where you can explore your study options.
