James Cook University

Welcome to study in Australia at James Cook University!

James Cook University is Australia's leading tropical research university. The University takes its name from the eighteenth-century British navigator and explorer Captain James Cook, whose epic voyages contributed to the world of science. The University was proclaimed in Townsville on 20 April 1970, two hundred years after Cook charted the eastern seaboard of Australia, including northern Queensland.

James Cook University is governed by the JCU Council, established under the James Cook University Act 1997. The Council is chaired by the Chancellor Lt Gen John Grey AC. Management of JCU is through the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sandra Harding. The University is guided by its Statement of Strategic Intent, which focuses on creating a brighter future for life in the tropics worldwide through graduates and discoveries that make a difference.

James Cook University is a vibrant, multi-campus university with our main sites in the tropical Queensland cities of Townsville and Cairns. JCU also has modern campuses in Brisbane and Singapore. There are smaller sites in Mackay, Mount Isa and Thursday Island, and the school deliver courses through education partners in Asia and the Pacific.
