    Student

    Sarah Gibson

    Bachelor of Planning

    Planning is a bit of everything from people, place to the environment. Studying planning at JCU with a tropical focus puts students in an area of rapid change, incredible social and economic challenge, and innovation. Singapore has been the highlight, spending two weeks in a city that really is a planning hub.

    The Bachelor of Planning suits many different kinds of students. If you’re creative there’s opportunity to do city designing, if you enjoy geographical information systems and planning schemes this could also be for you, or if you’re interested in environmental conservation you can focus on environmental policy.
