CQU News 23 April 2012
CQ University will open a state-of-the-art centre in Cairns, for more than 350 Far Northern students. The $500,000 hub will open in July and allow students to form study groups, access e-library and internet resources, sit exams, lodge assignments, participate in live lectures broadcast via high-speed internet, and make academic enquiries.
Local Cairns-based staff will operate the centre and provide an on-the-ground point of contact for students and prospective students alike, while ‘hot desks’ will be in place to allow CQUniversity’s pool of academic and research talent to operate out of the centre while working in Cairns
“The new centre will give CQUniversity a bricks-and-mortar presence in a city where we have been operating for many years as one of Australia’s leading providers of distance education,” says v-c Scott Bowman.
