  2. The JCU Model: The attributes of a JCU curriculum intended to shape our graduates’ distinctiveness.
  3. Curriculum Enhancement Priorities: The curriculum priorities that are recognised at JCU and across the higher education sector.
  4. Curriculum Design Process: The whole of course curriculum design process.

Students in Partnership and at the Heart

Students are at the heart of our University. Core Principal 1 of the JCU Learning, Teaching and Assessment Policy states:

"We are committed to student engagement and success by responding to the student voice, and to working in partnership with our students."

In the JCU Curriculum Framework, the JCU student or employable graduate is our point of focus.
