Study options

Whatever your passion or career aspirations, James Cook University (JCU) has a course to inspire you to excel in your chosen field. Our career-focused courses will give you a clear vision into your future profession, with practical, hands-on learning.

Opportunities for practical experience

Our courses are designed to provide you with opportunities for practical experience. Students normally study four subjects a semester for the duration of their Undergraduate or Postgraduate course. This may differ according to the course or program you choose to undertake.

Subjects require weekly attendance at a lecture followed by participation in a small-group tutorial providing you with a high level of study support and interaction with academics and other students.

JCU also offers the flexibility of courses that can be studied externally.

Advantages and opportunities

Yet another advantage of attending JCU is the opportunity to complete part of your Australian degree at one of over 60 partner universities from over 20 countries .

You may even have the opportunity to study some of your degree at JCU’s campus in Singapore. A highly accessible infrastructure and rich multicultural society make Singapore one of the best places to live and study in Asia.
