Our footprint extends beyond northern Queensland to include our Singapore campus, which combines research and teaching and demonstrates our commitment to the Asian region and internationalization, particularly in the Tropics.
Our Singapore campus offers both international and Australian JCU students the opportunity to study in South East Asia’s commercial, technological and academic hub.
JCU also has a presence in Brisbane, with a campus operated by Russo Higher Education, providing courses to international students on behalf of JCU.
In support of our tropical agenda, our teaching and research are focused on four themes: tropical ecosystems and environment; industries and economies in the tropics; people and societies in the Tropics; and tropical health, medicine, and biosecurity.

We are proud of our strong links with rural, remote and indigenous communities, and we are dedicated to ensuring that our teaching, learning, and research delivers practical benefits to the peoples and industries of our area.
