James Cook University
JCU: Applying for medicine/dental/physiotherapy/veterinary science/Health Science courses at James Cook University
The following courses offered by JCU require a QTAC application as well as a direct application to JCU.
These JCU courses have a rural, remote, tropical and Indigenous communities focus. Consequently, an important requirement of the JCU direct application is to demonstrate interest, experience, understanding and/or exposure to rural and/or remote locations and conditions. Applicants living in metropolitan areas will find this challenging. You will need to think creatively about how you can obtain the experience/knowledge this year.
Some ideas are:
You can view last year’s (2018 applications for entry in 2019) JCU direct application here. The applications website is usually updated in July for the following year. The date for submitting the JCU direct application form is normally the same as the QTAC due date. This date will be confirmed in the QTAC Guide and on QTAC’s website under the JCU link in May/June. You can access the prerequisites for the courses from the JCU website.
