James Cook University
James Cook University (JCU) is the second oldest university in Queensland and Australia’s leading university in the tropics.
Their Australian campuses in Cairns and Townsville are on the doorstep of some of the world’s most spectacular environments: the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and the rainforests of the Wet Tropics, the savannahs of Cape York Peninsula and the outback deserts. JCU also has a presence in Brisbane, with a campus operated by Russo Higher Education, providing courses to international students on behalf of JCU. The university’s teachings and research are primarily focused on four themes: tropical ecosystems and environment; industries and economies in the tropics; people and societies in the Tropics; and tropical health, medicine and biosecurity. JCU’s staff and students conduct research in the following areas: environmental science and management, biology, zoology, tourism, chemistry, physical geography and environmental geoscience, biochemistry and cell biology, genetics, neurosciences, nursing, and many more.
