    Nicole Dunn

    Bachelor of Speech Pathology

    Speech Pathologists go through the human lifespan. You can get jobs in paediatrics – right from when babies are born, all the way through to palliative care. There’s so many different places we can work, and we’re in really high demand, especially in rural areas.

    Bachelor of Speech Pathology

    One of the best things about studying speech pathology at JCU is the smaller class sizes, which means you get to know your classmates well and not only make friends but work colleagues when you graduate. You also get to know the lecturers, who were super supportive and helpful on my journey.

    We have a unique focus on preparing graduates to work in rural and remote locations. Many of our graduates thoroughly enjoy the opportunities the course provides to experiencing the complexities and joys of rural and remote practice, and many choose to work in regional Australia after graduation.

    It was an honour to have studied and graduated with a JCU Bachelor of Speech Pathology and now being an employer to many JCU Speech Pathology graduates in my private practices. It is such a rewarding career and it excites me seeing new graduates with the same passion and zest for the profession.
