An undergraduate degree is usually what you’ll study if you’re coming to university for the first time.
The most common undergraduate course is a bachelor’s degree, which can take between three to five years to complete full time. This degree can lead to postgraduate study, as well as a wide variety of career options.
At JCU, we take the guesswork out of study and have a variety of resources on offer to assist your transition to university. Be equipped to start strong and access the resources you need to succeed.
