New Australia Awards Scholarship (AAS) students are required to complete a four week Introductory Academic Program (IAP) prior to commencing their nominated award course. The IAP assists students and their families settle at James Cook University (JCU) and the general community as well as introduce students to the Australian culture and language.
Specific sessions are tailored to maximise the learning experience of individual students. Some IAP sessions are broken up into small groups to cater for undergraduate, postgraduate coursework and postgraduate research students.
The dates of the IAP for Semester Two 2015, Semester One 2016, and Semester Two 2016 are listed at Australia Awards Program important dates.
