JCU Brisbane Campus
Brisbane is Australia's New World City; with a diverse multi cultural population of 1.8 million, making Brisbane a centre of creativity and invention. The city provides students with forward-thinking educational providers and world-class research facilities all in a sub-tropical climate ideal for an outdoor lifestyle.
Brisbane is a safe and friendly city with a generous community spirit and weather that creates an outdoor lifestyle. Australia's low crime rates make it one of the safest countries compared with almost anywhere in the world and with Brisbane's comparatively lower living expenses and tuition costs with other developed countries, are all factors that make Brisbane one of the most liveable cities in the world.
James Cook University Brisbane Campus is a modern high rise building, centrally located in the Central Business District (CBD) located on Queen Street. Students have access to study space, computer stations, high speed internet and WiFi, leisure and activity rooms, all within walking distance of the riverfront, Queen Street's main shopping mall, city library and the many shops, parks and cafes that our beautiful city has to offer. The campus is easily accessible via the many forms of public transport which is heavily discounted to students.

Our academic calendar caters for three study periods beginning in March, July and November. This arrangement allows students to typically complete more subjects per year than a standard semester program operating at many other Australian universities. JCU Brisbane is the only JCU campus in Australia to operate a trimester model.
This model enables you to complete your degree faster, join the workforce sooner and save on living costs incurred with longer degree programs.
Starting November 2012 all newly enrolled students will be able to compete for the Deans' Academic Award with Monetary awards. This is a new award program specifically designed for all students enrolling into our Brisbane programs from November 2012 onwards.
*Please note that students continuing from previous entry times remain eligible for the HD Bursary until such time as they complete their studies or trigger entry to the new Dean's Awards by transferring or upgrading to an alternate or new program/degree, e.g. MPA to MBA.
The Dean's Academic Awards will give all students the opportunity to improve their Grade Point Average (GPA) throughout their stay at JCU Brisbane and ultimately and hopefully be eligible to compete for a JCU university medal
