Support and communication from Supervisor during Honours Degree was abysmal. I get that Honors is, in and of itself, a test ... but no.. feel like i got gyped. Well published, had my respect- shame this Academic was absent and indifferent throughout. Scraped through with the support of the 4th year Supervisor, to whom I'm entirely indebted, but was a hard year. Left me with zero interest in Psychology in any organised institution... ...so Ive gone into Advertising. I still maintain it's a tragic waste of potential. Long and short if it though; no.. you could do better than Psych at JCU.

Some courses were delivered by enthusiastic and well informed lecturers which made learning the content easier and over all more rewarding. Only a few staff did not provide adequate resources such as lecture slides or guidance for assessment.

The course was very light on actual content pertaining to psychology. The courses that were about psychology were good but I was forced to do alot of other subjects that held no interest and were not relevant because there was not enough psychology course available.

The course is research focused. The staff made no effort to explain the pathways to registration which a very tricky to navigate.

The course was good, however no one ever informs you that it is impossible to find work from the degree. The teachers of the course were not very helpful or supportive. As they are academic teachers most of them have no experience in the field. Most of the teachers are so academic they do not know how to teach in other methods to assist a broad range of learners.

The course is great! However would have been much better with more practical work. Especially a work experience element.

I did enjoy my course.My lecturers and tutors were decent.I wished instead of doing a thesis research we were allowed to do an industry relevant internship.Post graduation I had difficulty finding jobs within the field of Psychology as I did not have practical experience.My classmates too faced difficulty finding jobs within this field and have worked in other fields or went on further their studies.When I went to education fairs,a few education agents and university representatives actually said they had a few James Cook University Psychology graduates who have difficulty finding jobs and are looking to further their studies and enquired or have engaged their help to be enrolled in a post graduate course.

Course was good but ahpra was the problem. Not the uni's fault. Could have done more practical training though.
