For those applicants who have not completed these Queensland Year 12 subjects or their equivalents, JCU offers the following bridging subjects at the Cairns and Townsville campuses.

Applicants can enrol into the following subjects as:

  • Part of a JCU undergraduate degree (e.g. Bachelor of Science)
  • Part of a JCU Diploma of Higher Education, or
  • A JCU non-award applicant (PDF, 260 KB) (Commonwealth supported places are not available to miscellaneous applicants, and tuition fees apply).
