       "I would describe JCU Brisbane as a university full of
       excitement and opportunities.
       As an international student, the best thing about studying on an international campus is that I meet people from all over the
       world and I learn from them. With motivated lecturers and support staff who provide a high standard of academic assistance,
       I believe JCU Brisbane provides me with the best environment to learn and achieve my goals."

      "Why JCU Brisbane? I think there would be very few universities where it
      feels like home. The fact that the campus is culturally diverse and in the heart
      of Brisbane City makes it the perfect place to study and meet students from
      various backgrounds.
      Speaking of the advantages, one major advantage is that throughout my course the staff have been exceptionally helpful, they have been there
      when I needed them most. With excellent study materials and practical knowledge of both IT and the Business side of things, this course has made
      me ready to face real world challenges head on. Along with studies, the various workshops for learning and extracurricular activities have kept me
      busy and open to learning new things every day. Finally, the major advantage at JCU Brisbane would be Joblinx. Joblinx and their experienced staff
      helped me secure an internship in a matter of weeks. This allowed me to gain real experience in the Australian IT and Business sector, keeping me
      one step ahead when applying for that much awaited job."
