    Student

    Renee Bensemann

    BACHELOR OF GEOLOGY

    In pursuing honours, I wanted to continue my studies at JCU because the geoscience staff are world- renowned in their fields. They are always happy to give their time and share their knowledge whenever I needed it. Everybody within the College wants you to succeed.

    Lecturer

    Associate Professor Eric Roberts

    Head of Earth and Environmental Science

    It is nice to be part of a smaller university where staff and students actually get to know each other, and where there is opportunity to be involved in research. A highlight of our degree is the opportunity for field-based learning, bringing students into the field, and providing real hands on learning.
