No other university can offer such a wide range of classes in the shadow of two of the world's finest natural world heritage areas - The Wet Tropic Rainforests and the Great Barrier Reef.

Diverse study options


Whatever your credit transfer needs, JCU can provide you with a choice of classes to broaden your academic experience and enrich your personal outlook. JCU's innovative teaching styles encourage personal achievement, and as a leading research university, our programs are informed by discovery.

Location and lifestyle


Northern Queensland is well known for embracing a relaxed tropical lifestyle. The cities of Cairns and Townsville, where JCU's main campuses are located, are popular destinations for visitors with modern facilities and vibrant, multicultural populations not usually found outside of capital cities with Indigenous, European and Asian communities. Of course, the Great Barrier Reef, ancient rainforests and tropical beaches are all there to explore. The outback is just as accessible and provides opportunities to experience the Australia of legend.
