Student success stories

Every student at USQ has a unique story to tell. From the challenges of their industry, to study itself and the rest of life’s hurdles, students encounter several little victories throughout their study journey. This series of student stories has been created to celebrate those achievements and inspire other students going through similar experiences to keep on going. 
‘Study is a bit like going to the gym. If you stop going, it’s hard to start going again.’ – Kirsty Kelly, MBA student

Whether you’re studying arts or science, undergraduate or PhD, full-time or part-time, let these stories motivate you to push through life’s barriers and celebrate the little wins along the way. If you have a story to share, get in touch by emailing
