Why JCU?
          An exceptional learning experience in one of the most exciting places on Earth.

          A brighter future
          James Cook University (JCU) is Australia’s leading University for the Tropics. We offer a world-class learning experience with the aim
          to give you, our students, the best possible start to your career.
          Our strengths lie in quality teaching and practical training for the workforce. Our small class sizes ensure you receive the attention
          from your lecturers and tutors that will help you excel.
          At JCU you are encouraged to experience opportunities outside the lecture theatre - under the sea, in local clinics and offices, overseas
          and in the rainforest and outback. You’ll leave your study life prepared for the competitive demands of the global workforce.

on campus.
We acknowledge the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners
of the lands and waters where we operate our business. We honour the unique cultural and spiritual
relationship to the land, waters and seas of First Australian peoples and their continuing and rich
contribution to James Cook University and Australian society. We also pay respect to ancestors
and Elders past, present and future.
