    Student

    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.

    Luana Healey

    Bachelor of Psychological Science

    I was impressed with the variety of subjects while studying the Bachelor of Psychological Science, including Forensic Psychology and Personality Psychology. My experience with Indigenous staff and peers has been a highlight throughout my university years and has provided rewarding and culturally strong opportunities.
