Distance Education

CQUniversity is among Australia’s leading

providers of quality distance education,

with more than 30 years of experience.

In fact, two-thirds of CQUniversity

students are currently doing at least part of

their program this way. At CQUniversity

the choice of programs you can study by

distance education is vast and you enjoy

a high level of personal support from the

moment you apply to the day you graduate.

The advantages of studying by distance

education include:

• study time that can be scheduled to fit

in with your other commitments such as

family or work;

• choosing your own study environment

and;

• no relocation costs.

Learning by Distance Education is

study by distance education while residing

outside of Australia. Overseas expatriates or

their spouses, who are working and residing

Useful Information

Work While You Study

Many international students gain valuable

experience by obtaining work during

their stay in Australia. Part-time or casual

employment can not only provide you with

the opportunity to earn extra income,

but also help you make new friends and

establish contacts.

If you are granted an Australian Student

Visa, you automatically receive a work

visa. Your work visa permits you to work

up to 20 hours per week in part-time

employment during term and full-time

employment during vacation. You need to

obtain a Tax File Number (TFN) to work in

Australia. You can obtain a TFN online from

the Australia Tax Office website or pick up

an application form from the University.

CQUniversity also provides support to

source employment. Many employers

advertise daily via the University for casual

and part-time employment (less than 20

hours per week).

Health Cover

International students and their families

must obtain health insurance through the

Overseas Student Health Cover Scheme

(OSHC). Medibank Private is the preferred

OSHC provider for CQUniversity. Your

first payment must be made when you pay

your first term tuition fees, prior to coming

to Australia. The annual membership fee

is AU$704 for a family (or AU$354 for

six months) and AU$388.80 for a single

(or AU$194.40 for six months). It is a

condition of your student visa that you

renew and pay for your membership each

year or part year you are enrolled.

If you have a health problem, make an

appointment to see a doctor (look under

medical practitioners in the telephone

book). If you require emergency medical

attention after hours, go to the Accident

and Emergency Section of your nearest

hospital.

OSHC will contribute towards the cost

of any medical and hospital care you may

need while studying in Australia. The

OSHC scheme covers you for 85% of the

recommended government scheduled fee

for a doctor’s visit (including a specialist

doctor) and pathology and X-ray services.

For medical services while you are an

admitted patient at a hospital, OSHC will

pay 100% of the schedule fee. If the doctor

charges more than the schedule fee, you

pay the difference. OSHC pays the cost

of ambulance transport to a hospital or

medical centre if you have an accident or an

unforeseen illness that requires immediate

medical attention. OSHC does not cover

the cost of dental, physiotherapy, optical, or

any other ancillary services.

How To Make An

OSHC Claim

When you receive treatment from a doctor,

you will be given an account to pay. After

you have paid this account, take the account

and receipt together with your OSHC

membership card to any Medibank Private

Office to apply for your refund which will

be paid into your nominated bank account.

70


Extra Private Health

Insurance

You may consider joining a private

medical insurance company to cover you

and your family for some of the cost of

services not covered by OSHC such as

optical, physiotherapy, dental and some

pharmaceuticals. You may also choose to

arrange private health insurance through

Medibank Private or other health funds

listed in the Yellow Pages of the telephone

directory.

Accommodation

Capricornia College provides affordable

on-campus accommodation for those

studying in Rockhampton and is a great

place to live and learn. Students studying in

city or regional campuses must arrange for

off-campus accommodation. You can choose

to live independently or share a rental

house, apartment or townhouse either

furnished or unfurnished.

In addition to the rental costs, you will

normally share the cost of electricity, gas

and telephone services. It is not possible

to arrange this type of accommodation

until after your arrival in your designated

city, because you must inspect the

accommodation personally prior to signing

a tenancy agreement.

A bond fee is paid at the time of signing a

lease. This usually costs about four times

the weekly rental. Tenancy agreements are

usually for a fixed amount of time (such as

six or twelve months). This agreement is a

legal document that sets out the conditions

of rent, dates when the agreement starts

and ends, and the terms of the agreement.

You should not sign any legal document

or pay a bond until you have read and

understood all the terms and conditions.

CQUniversity staff are on hand to assist you

in reading through rental agreements if you

need assistance.

Public Transport

Public transport may include a bus, train,

ferry or tram depending on where you

live. Your weekly transport costs will be

dependent on the distance you live from the

campus. Cost range from AU$20 - AU$50

per week.

Phones

There are public telephones on-campus, in

shopping centres and various other public

places around all cities. These phones

take coins or a prepaid phone card. Using

a prepaid phone card avoids the risk of

running up expensive telephone accounts.

Most private residences have existing

telephone lines. If a telephone connection

is already installed, a reconnection fee costs

approximately AU$59. The cost of a new

connection is approximately AU$299. In

addition to the cost of calls, handset and

line rental are also payable.

If you have an existing mobile phone, please

check with your service provider for the

practicality of using your mobile phone in

Australia before you leave. Australia has

many mobile phone service providers, so

ensure you understand the charges and

up-front fees or contracts before signing.

Prepaid mobile phones are cheaper to

buy and have the advantage of not being

locked into a contract. Please speak to a

CQUniversity staff member if you need

advice on purchasing a mobile phone.

71


Visas

Visa Information

You will require a student visa in order

to study in Australia. The type of visa you

need depends on the length of your stay.

If you intend to stay in Australia for three

months or less, you may apply for a short

stay visa. For periods of study greater than

three months, a Student Visa is required

and is granted only if you enrol in a

registered, full-time program in Australia.

All courses for international students,

and the Australian education and training

institutions that offer them, must be

registered with the Australian Government.

You can apply for a visa online.

CQUniversity is not able to give qualified

advice on the Australian visa system but

the CQUniversity Student Services or

Client Services staff are able to answer

general questions about student visas and

provide guidance on where you should go

to seek further visa advice. Please visit the

Department of Immigration and Citizenship

(DIAC) website at www.immi.gov.au for

further information. If you are currently

living in Australia you can telephone DIAC

direct on 131 881.

Graduate (Temporary) visa –

Subclass 485

This visa gives those overseas students who

meet the two-year study requirement but

who do not meet the requirements for

a permanent General Skilled Migration

(GSM) visa an opportunity to remain in

Australia for up to 18 months to gain the

additional skills they need. The visa will

assist former overseas students as it will

allow them to work and live in Australia,

enhancing their cultural awareness and

giving them greater exposure to the

Australian labour market. Skilled graduate

visa holders may choose to focus on

improving their English language skills

or gaining skilled employment in the

Australian labour market. Alternatively,

they may choose to complete a professional

year that has been specified by the minister

(where available in their chosen occupation).

Applicants who can demonstrate that they

have been employed in Australia for at

least 12 months in their nominated skilled

occupation or a closely related skilled

occupation will be awarded 10 points under

the GSM points test.

General Skilled Migration –

Regional Australia/

low population growth

metropolitan areas

For the purposes of General Skilled

Migration (GSM), you may be able to claim

points for the ‘regional Australia’ part of

the points test if you have lived in one

or more of these areas and have studied

full-time at a campus located in regional

Australia or a low population growth

metropolitan area for at least two years

prior to lodging your migration application.

You need to demonstrate that you have

studied at a campus located in one of the

specified regional/low population growth

metropolitan post codes. Rockhampton,

Gladstone, Mackay and Bundaberg are

on the specified regional/low population

growth metropolitan postcodes.
