JCU Internal Sponsorship

JCU academic staff may apply for a fully sponsored professional development place in the Graduate Certificate of Education (Academic Practice) and tuition fees will be waived. 

A continued waiver for subsequent subjects will depend upon continuing employment at JCU.  Your College Dean must complete the first section of your Application for Tuition Fee Internal Sponsorship form and attach this with your course application form.

To be eligible for internal sponsorship, teaching staff will need to correspond with one of following categories.

Category 1

Category 2

Category 3
