International Students undertaking the CQU Global Outbound Program

International students are responsible for meeting all Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) student visa requirements and overseas institutions visa requirements. CQUniversity will not be responsible for matters related to visa applications. Some partner institutions may not accept an international student for an exchange program.

If you are an international student studying at CQUniversity Australia on a student visa, there may be some restrictions on where you can go. The standard international student visa regulations would not allow you to remain in Australia and undertake a virtual exchange and we do not encourage students to return to their country of origin on our exchange program. Some of our partner institutions will also have restrictions, but there will be opportunities available to you. Please contact our CQUGlobal adviser by emailing cquglobal-out@cqu.edu.au or calling 07 49232438
