About Program

James Cook University is Australia's leading university for the Tropics. Each trimester we welcome students from all over the world to our specialised Business Study Abroad Program to study for one or two trimesters in the spectacular tropical north. North Queensland offers a unique combination of stunning climate, pollution-free environment and a multicultural population. Our campuses in Cairns and Townsville are each within 30 minutes of Australia's Big Three - The Great Barrier Reef, tropical rainforests and the outback.

Australia is a welcoming and multicultural society, rich with nationalities and cultures from all over the world. The international student populations in Cairns and Townsville are diverse and close-knit. Combined with a welcoming local community, international students are encouraged to become part of the local community and participate in Australian life.
