Student Stories

Charlotte Russell

Charlotte started a Master of Science (Marine Biology) at JCU, Queensland, in July 2018

“I have now studied at three different universities in three different countries and by far JCU has been the best. I am a very practical person so I learn best when going out and practicing what you are being taught – JCU does this! The trips that they have available for postgraduate students in marine biology are great – I am going to the Galapagos islands in July.

“The majority of the lecturers are helpful and good at telling you what they expect and teaching you that. I’m not sure that the freshers parties are as good as at UK universities but there are a variety of clubs to go out to so if you make a good group of friends then you can go and have a good time yourselves. Overall I would highly recommend studying here as I am enjoying it no end! My one piece of advice? Bring insect repellant!”
