Hear from the experts

JCU academics are at the forefront of research and development activities around the world. Our students are privileged to be learning from expert academics who are leaders in their fields. Because our academics are at the cutting edge, many JCU lectures are based on information that hasn't even made it into the textbooks yet!

Get your questions answered

A range of JCU staff and academics will be available to speak with you about your career aspirations and the opportunities available in your chosen area of study. Take advantage of the stimulating presentations by our academic staff – with information, lectures and activities including the forensic trail and hands on activities for kids and adults alike – there will be something to interest everyone!

Find your dream career

Take the opportunity to work your way through an online career suggestion program with the friendly staff from JCU Careers and Employment and identify career suggestions based on your skills and interests.
