                                           for me. One was a paid part time job that helped me support

                                           from a total business perspective in an Australian environment.
“The lecturers at JCU Brisbane are very sweet and helpful. They
 give you quality study material and I enjoy attending my classes.
 The atmosphere at JCU Brisbane is warm and inviting. There are
 so many people that have helped me out and who understand what
 it's like as an International student.

 My first experience with Joblinx was transformational. My
 current internship is in Food and Beverage at the Sheraton Four
 Point Hotel. This experience has broadened my perception of the
 hospitality industry. I am thankful to Joblinx and JCU Brisbane
 for providing this service on campus.”

International Make Up School in the Business Administration

“Studying at JCU Brisbane has been the best decision I have
                        made because the facilities here are great, and the support we
                        get from the Joblinx department is amazing. Also, the great
                        friendships I have fostered here has really made my time

                       My favourite part of my degree is the professors here! They
                       are so helpful and supportive. Whatever questions we may
                       have, they answer promptly, and they also stay back after the
                       lectures so that we can talk to them. I think that is really good.”

“JCU Brisbane is awesome! I think that’s the best word I can
 use to describe what I am enjoying right now. My studies
 are just cool. My lecturers are very nice and I’ve been able to
 make new friends from different countries.

Living in Australia has given me the opportunity to meet
people from different walks of life, different backgrounds.
This is the first time traveling outside of my country and I
can say that I am really enjoying it. ”

“JCU Brisbane has been both fun and inspiring. Every professor I have
 had teach me has managed to make me challenge myself, invest in
 myself more and encourage me to reach my academic goals, whilst
 offering me support and pushing me towards excellence.

JCU Brisbane is teaching me to position myself as a leader and work
with people and their strengths to achieve my goals. Additionally, the
university offers many useful tools to students, for both their professional
and their personal life, and supports them to help them flourish in
their academic and professional path. I would definitely recommend
studying at JCU Brisbane.”

“When I decided to study at JCU Brisbane, it was and still is very well known for
     it's graduate employability and that is what I was looking for in the long run. JCU
     Brisbane is the place where talent is recognised and awarded the right way. They
     have friendly professors encouraging me every step of the my journey that pumps
     me up with confidence that I'm doing alright and I can continue to do better!

     I love the fact that I can explore my options while enrolling for subjects. I’ve enjoyed
     all the subjects of IT so far and in particular the MBA subjects, that I feel might have
     opened new doors for me. I’ve had the chance to strengthen my abilities in subjects I
     have dealt with in my bachelors, and I also got to learn new concepts which helped me
     realize what I find challenging and I need to work on. JCU Brisbane is the go-to place if
     you are wanting to go BIG in life.”
