      “Studying at James Cook University Brisbane is one of the
      best choices I have made.
      Not only do I enjoy my course but I am confident that the learning opportunities offered throughout my course are preparing
      me to be a valuable graduate.

      I have found Brisbane city to be a wonderful place to study and enjoy lifestyle balance. Staff and lecturers are very supportive
      and friendly. For me, JCU Brisbane is my home away from home.”
