Student stories

"When I decided to study at JCU Brisbane, it was and still is very well known for its graduate employability and that is what I was looking for in the long run.

Before accepting my offer, I was told that JCU Brisbane is a place where talent is recognised and awarded, which is exactly what I’ve found since being here.

Friendly professors encourage me at every step of my journey and that pumps me up with confidence that I’m doing alright and I can do better!"
