“When I decided to advance my career in Accounting, I approached a few universities in Brisbane.
James Cook University Brisbane was the only one which treated me on a personal level. I received calls, met with staff members and I was supported in setting up my study plan.
It was a satisfying journey thereafter, staff members and lecturers are very approachable and willing to share their knowledge and expertise.
I found the lecturers have lots of ‘real life experience’ and not only delivered required prescribed material, but also went above and beyond to make the lectures and tutorials interesting and showed students how it is practiced in the workforce.
JCU Brisbane also has various activities outside the study area, I particularly loved the Multicultural Lunches, where I enjoyed tasty foods from around the world and got to meet students, lecturers and staff members. I found this be a great bonding and networking idea!”
