Social Integration Initiatives
CQUniversity has implemented a range of student activities and services to promote improved social integration for international students on and off campus. These social integration activities commence as soon as the students arrive on campus. A fully facilitated enrolment process allows students to integrate with staff members from all areas of the campus including academic staff. Students are timetabled into a thorough orientation program which includes social activities. External guest speakers are invited to participate in orientation such as community police officers and health fund representatives.
Other social integration activities are scheduled throughout each term. These include sporting activities, functions to celebrate a wide range of cultural festivals, community activities and communication activities such as English conversation corner, interviewing skills workshops, oral communication workshops and academic writing workshops.
