New accommodation at the James Cook University campus in Cairns officially opened recently. The building with rooms for 300 students has been named the John Grey Hall of Residence. It offers residents a choice of studio apartments, shared apartments with en suite bathrooms, and six-bedroom apartments.
JCU graduates topped the list in the Australian Government’s Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching 2017 Employer Satisfaction Survey (QILT ESS). JCU graduates received the highest percentage of favourable ratings from employers. They outranked graduates from all other universities across Australia.
James Cook University is experiencing strong growth in its undergraduate science courses. The Dean of the College of Science and Engineering Professor Marcus Lane said it’s a great result, and an endorsement of the quality of JCU’s teaching and research. “We have invested in world-class research and teaching facilities at The Science Building and elsewhere, and this renewed interest is an acknowledgement of the quality of our science, which is recognised internationally.”
