    “I made the decision to transfer to CQUniversity for two reasons. Firstly, the tuition fees were very affordable which allowed me to save money and secondly, I wanted to save time in my studies. Studying here has taught me many lessons, one of the most important being independence. My next step is to find a job related to my degree and I believe I can do this thanks to the many things that I have learnt at CQUniversity.”
