Dietary Acculturation of CQUni International Students

Many people have come to Australia from different parts of the world to pursue their higher education studies. They face many different challenges as they adjust to their new environment. Some of the challenges include adapting to a different culture and different types of foods. International students’ migration from their home country to a new country may affect their food choices and dietary habits.

In this study, we would also like to investigate whether the international students at Central Queensland University have changed their food habits or dietary patterns since coming to Australia. If these food habits have changed, we want to identify the reasons for the change.

By participating in this study, you’ll be helping us by providing information to understand the eating patterns and food habits of international students. This information will help inform public health programs for international students and people who have come to Australia from other places and have adapted to life in Australia.

The procedure involves filling an online survey that will take approximately 20-25 minutes to complete. Your responses will be confidential, and we do not collect identifying information such as your name, email address or IP address. The survey consists of  4  parts which include demographic information, food choices and dietary habits, food related habits and behaviours before and during COVID-19 outbreak and perception towards healthy eating.

Supporting mental wellbeing of mature-aged university students from regional & remote Australia

The National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE) is conducting a one-year national research project to investigate how we can better support the mental wellbeing of mature-aged undergraduate university students who are from regional and remote areas in Australia.

If you are 21 or older, studying an undergraduate degree and living in a regional area, you are invited to take part in an anonymous online survey, which should take 20 -30 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey, you'll be invited to indicate if you'd like to participate in a one-on-one phone interview. For more information about the survey, see the participant information sheet.

‘You going to uni?’: Exploring how regional people navigate into and through higher education

We Need You!

Are you from a regional area? Currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree? Would you like to share your perspectives on your experience of university and your decision-making around going to university?

We invite you to participate in a research study focusing on how students from regional areas navigate their movement into and through university. Deciding to go to uni can be quite complex as this ‘movement’ may range between having to move away from home to attend university to staying home and studying online, as well as everything in between.

Your experience as a university student from a regional area will be invaluable for providing assistance and advice to other people in regional communities who may be considering university as an option for their future.

To participate, complete the online survey or contact Janine Delahunty at to arrange an interview via phone, zoom or similar. For more information click here.
