CQUniversity Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Nick Klomp said that students didn’t need to be from a regional area, they just needed to be planning on studying at a regional CQUniversity campus, “Our regional campuses don’t only offer a great quality education, they also offer the companionship of close-knit communities, plus opportunities to explore iconic natural wonders, all with a lower cost of living,” Prof Klomp said.

“With its scenic location and strong ties with industry, CQUniversity Gladstone Marina is both an attractive place to study and a powerhouse of innovative research.

“Students at CQUniversity Gladstone Marina can enjoy state-of-the-art lecture theatres and training facilities, computer labs, a newly refurbished library, a bookshop and range of career counselling and support services.

“Research is a major strength of CQUniversity Gladstone Marina, with many industry conferences, training, professional development activities and industry partnership projects making use of this campus’ well-placed facilities.”
