James Cook University

If Australia's environment is what attracts you to studying there then you should consider James Cook University (JCU). With two campuses in Tropical North Queensland, in Townsville and Cairns, JCU uses its proximity to the Great Barrier Reef, tropical rainforests, arid outback Queensland, and indigenous communities to create an innovative and inspiring academic community. With 11,000 students on the Townsville campus and 3,000 students at Cairns, you'll find active student communities in cities that provide a unique perspective on Australian life. As a comprehensive university, you'll find that there are a lot of courses available to you. While you may think of marine biology when you think of JCU, it's also a great destination if you are interested in indigenous peoples and sociology, rural education issues, business and economics, geology or ecology, or engineering related to tropical climates. Don't rule it out for subjects like political science or history either as you will receive a distinct regional perspective on these topics.
