The course outline was relevant to my field of work especially in the sense that it allows rooms where I practice beyond the basics I was taught from nursing school.....more of evidence practice.I am happy and proud to be a JCU graduant.I had to study and work at the same time and I also had a 7 year old daughter whom I had to take care of because my husband travelled alot.The opportunities of being given reading items/articles and the availabilities of lecturers whom we can consult in time of needs was great help. I was hoping to continue to do further studies with the same University if time allows.I do and always share with Friends and families that JCU would be the best place to further studies.

Student review
Aquaculture department was very practical and hands on, got to run real experiments and aquaculture systems. Marine biology courses weren’t as hands on as Aquaculture was, I expected more as it was prized as the top marine college in QLD. Was more theory and textbook based. Hands on experience was only gained from volunteer work in the marine courses. Might have changed since then though.

I enjoyed the experience of studying in a very multicultual environment and adquired new knowledge;however I found that the marked job was requiring more practical experience. Since I finished my degree, it has been very hard to get a full time job.
