About James Cook University

Originally opening as a regional university college under the umbrella of the University of Queensland, James Cook University has been in operation since 1961. Officially opening its doors as James Cook University of North Queensland through a special ceremony with Queen Elizabeth ll in Townsville on the 20th of April 1970, two hundred years to the day since James Cook first sighted Australia. James Cook University aim to follow in the legacy of James Cook himself, by pursuing game-changing research, exploration and understanding of the modern-day issues and triumphs that are present in northern Australia and the tropics around the globe. JCU have a deliberate focus on tropical environments, both in Australia and around the world. Their goal is to produce graduates that make a genuine difference through discoveries and work towards maintaining and protecting tropical ecosystems, the environment and the economy. James Cook has seven campuses, six of which are within Queensland and one located in Singapore.
