“Students, university is a transformative experience. You are starting on a journey where you will meet new, lifelong friends, learn new interests and passions, and build the foundation of careers where you can make a difference,” Michael Trick said.

Each of CMU-Q’s academic degree programmes offered “Explore Your Major” sessions, followed by a scavenger hunt designed to familiarise students with life on CMU-Q’s campus.
