    Christopher Eales

    Bachelor of Psychological Science

    I chose JCU for proximity and its reputation for excellence. The depth and breadth of knowledge of the lecturers and tutors in the Psychology department introduced new concepts beyond what I thought I knew about psychology.

    Patrick Twivey

    Bachelor of Psychological Science

    I chose to study at JCU as I knew of the great reputation it has for job success and educational outcomes. The small class sizes mean that the lecture and tutorial staff are more accessible if you have any questions. One highlight so far is learning about biological processes and how these drive behaviour.

    Bachelor of Psychological Science

    The highlights of my course are the lifelong friendships that I have made with classmates, and the connections that I have made with those already working in different areas of psychology. Thinking about studying psychological science at JCU? Do it!

    Psychology

    Psychology at JCU is based in a small and friendly college where staff can get to know our students and offer them the kinds of support not found in other larger universities. I like working at JCU as it is a truly world-class university that produces research that makes a real difference to people’s lives.
