Living the tropical lifestyle at James Cook University

James Cook University students are living in a tropical paradise

Some of the most common comments we receive from OzTREKK students include “I love my program!” and “The weather is so tropical, so beautiful!”

Living the tropical lifestyle at James Cook University

Great Barrier Reef diving

Yeah, we know! Not only are you studying at one of the world’s top universities and in a world-renowned program, but you’re also in Australia. So enjoy it! Here, let’s take a look at Australia’s Tropical University, James Cook University.

Located in Queensland (the northeast coast of Australia), JCU bathes in warm, sunny weather almost every day of the year, and their tropical campuses in Cairns and Townsville are the perfect settings for you to fully experience the Australian way of life.

Friendly people

Australians are relaxed and friendly people. They enjoy gathering with friends and family to share good food and spend quality time together. Most Australians are passionate about sports and there are lots of opportunities to watch live sports including cricket, Australian rules football, netball, rugby league, union, football and tennis at one of their many sporting venues.

Great outdoors and the Great Barrier Reef

Aussies love the great outdoors and northern Queensland provides the ideal base for a variety of recreational activities including

  • rainforest hikes
  • mountain biking
  • snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef
  • Scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef
  • interacting with native Australian animals

Beach life in Australia

Entertainment and nightlife

Queensland’s welcoming towns boast a fun and thriving nightlife with restaurants, cafés and bars where you can relax and meet new friends. If you’re heading to Australia, you’re not allowed to be a hermit. Everything about Australia will pull you outside to experience the true Aussie lifestyle.

Low living costs

Regional cities are small enough to avoid the hustle and bustle of big city life, and large enough to have all the facilities you’ll need. The cost of living is low compared to major Australian capital cities, allowing you to get out and enjoy the many events and activities the region has to offer.

Did you know…

North Queensland is well known for embracing a safe and relaxed tropical lifestyle. Established Indigenous, European and Asian communities add to the cultural diversity of the region not usually found outside of the capital cities.

If you’re looking for something different—a truly Australian experience, consider James Cook University. The population of the area reflects many university towns in Canada, and OzTREKK students enjoy the gorgeous, hot weather and the friendliness of Northern Queenslanders. The cities of Cairns of Townsville provide you with the feeling of a small-town atmosphere, yet there is plenty to see and do in and around each city. As a smaller university, JCU staff members are approachable and friendly, and students enjoy the attention they receive upon arrival and throughout their program.

In JCU Townsville, you’ll find JCU Medical School. In Cairns, JCU Dental School!

JCU Cairns expands with on-campus accommodation

Accommodation for hundreds of students is to be built on James Cook University’s Cairns campus, ensuring the city is an even more attractive destination for domestic and international students to learn and live.

JCU will invest $40m to develop the 300-bed accommodation on its Smithfield campus.

The seven-storey, 9,450m2 complex will offer a mix of accommodation options including studio apartments with en-suite bathrooms.

The development will also include a ground floor retail space, which could include a coffee shop.

There are plans to expand the accommodation to 1,000 beds over the longer term.

JCU’s Chancellor, Bill Tweddell said the announcement is great news for the city, and the accommodation will help grow JCU’s Cairns campus.

“We are delighted to be announcing the construction of accommodation on the Cairns campus. We know that on-campus accommodation is essential for the growth of our campus.”

JCU Vice Chancellor Professor Sandra Harding said the accommodation will provide a tremendous boost to JCU’s expansion in Cairns.

“The Cairns campus has been growing and on-campus accommodation will make it an even more attractive destination for students. It will also provide a significant boost to the local economy.”

The accommodation will offer residential support and pastoral care, a wide range of social events and programs, a safe living environment, amenities including residential parking, ‘end of ride’ cycling facilities, gym, kitchen and laundry facilities, and high-speed Wi-Fi.

JCU Deputy Vice Chancellor Global Strategy & Engagement and Head of the Cairns Campus, Professor Robyn McGuiggan said the accommodation would help JCU attract more regional, interstate and international students.

The Chairman of Advance Cairns, Trent Twomey said the construction of on-campus accommodation at the Smithfield campus is a key priority for the city.

“JCU is planning exciting projects for the campus, such as the Cairns Innovation Centre, and on-campus accommodation is an integral part of the continued growth of JCU in Cairns.

“This will enable our regional students to live on campus and receive a full service university experience without having to travel south,” Mr Twomey said.

Work has commenced at the site with the accommodation planned to be available to students from first semester, 2018. It is expected that a total of 400 jobs will be created throughout the project and that at peak periods during construction, a maximum of 180 workers will be on site at any one time.

The accommodation is being designed by Wilson Architects and built by ADCO Constructions.

The project will also have a high degree of local participation. ADCO’s Local Industry Participation charter mandates that a majority of subcontractors be locally sourced.

This not only provides ADCO with local knowledge and experience on its projects but also provides significant economic stimulus to the community.

What’s at JCU Cairns?

JCU Dental School of course! The dental school was established in 2008 in response to the challenges presented by the oral health needs of northern Australia, and its foundation is part of the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Molecular Sciences’ strong commitment to the provision of professional health education in the area.

The dental school is one of only three dental schools in Australia located outside a capital city. The school’s establishment was funded by a grant of $52.5m from the Federal Government. The new, purpose-built building on the Smithfield campus of the university opened at the beginning of 2011. A new building to house JCU Dental, next door to the Discipline of Dentistry School Building, opened in February 2012.

JCU welcomes Cairns Innovation Centre commitment

James Cook University has welcomed the Federal Coalition’s commitment of $10m towards JCU’s Cairns Innovation Centre (CIC).

The $50M CIC will translate JCU’s teaching and research into innovation that generates jobs and economic growth for Cairns and the broader region.

It will lead to the creation of products and processes with real commercial application that can drive economic growth and diversity for Northern Australia.

James Cook University Vice-Chancellor Professor Sandra Harding said the announcement is wonderful news for Cairns, northern Queensland and northern Australia more broadly.

“The Cairns Innovation Centre will tap into JCU and the region’s tropical knowledge and expertise, and catalyse and accelerate the translation of research and new business ideas into products and services that are in high demand in the North and beyond.”

“It will be a place where business people, entrepreneurs, community organisations, researchers, educators and students can work and learn from each other,” she said.

Professor Harding said the Centre will foster a culture of entrepreneurship and enable the university to produce graduates who are innovative and business-savvy, with the skills, understanding and drive to power Northern Australia.

“The CIC will nurture a new generation of students and young graduates who can engage deeply with industry and business via work-integrated learning, and apply innovative technologies in established industries and drive start-up businesses in emerging industries.

“This will further diversify the Cairns economy, boost its exports and attract innovators from around the world to the city,” she said.

Professor Harding has thanked the Cairns community, including Advance Cairns and the Cairns Chamber of Commerce, for its support for the project.

James Cook University envisions the $50m facility will be funded via $10m from the Queensland Government (already committed), $10m from the Australian Government and the balance to be sourced by JCU.

It’s expected that the CIC will create 155 full-time construction jobs and 200 operational positions.

JCU University Council approves historic headline restructure

The Council of James Cook University has approved a historic organizational restructure that strengthens JCU and lays the foundations for its future financial sustainability.

James Cook University

JCU is Australia’s tropical university

Last month, the University Council unanimously approved a headline restructure that will create seven colleges and replace the faculty and schools system.

Acting Chancellor, Ian Jessup has told staff that the University Council voted unanimously in favour of approving the proposed headline restructure.

JCU Vice Chancellor, Professor Sandra Harding has told staff forums that the new structure will foster innovation and provide greater opportunities for collaboration across disciplines.

“It will secure and enhance learning programs which are in high demand including environmental science, tropical medicine and health,” she said.

Professor Harding said the restructure sets the university on a path to realize JCU as a “great” university, renowned for education and research relevant to the tropics.

The existing structure of 15 schools under the faculties will be replaced by seven colleges, three of which would be under the Division of Tropical Health and Medicine and four under the Division of Tropical Environments and Societies.

The colleges will be

The restructure also establishes four divisions covering Global Strategy & Engagement, Academic & Student Life, Research & Innovation, and Services & Resources.

Professor Harding said the ambition is to uphold a university that is unique in the Australian higher education setting, in terms of its focus, the student experience and its engagement.

The restructure follows almost 18 months of extensive consultation with staff, students, the University Council and other stakeholders on the possible future directions of JCU.

In December 2013 a draft structure was released to the university community for consultation. More than 200 written submissions were received and substantial changes have been made to the proposed structure taking into account those submissions.

Professor Harding said the consultation process showed there is strong support for changing the university’s structure.

“The decision to recommend reorganization of the university was not taken lightly and it provides a unique opportunity to harness the desire for change among our staff,” she said. “Clearly this is going to be a time of transition. The job is to implement the structure and I am looking for the patience and support of staff in this transition phase,” she said.

Professor Harding said the restructure is not about cost-cutting but positioning the university for the future. But she said that like all universities, JCU does need to consider how it will deal with deep funding cuts.

Government funding to JCU is expected to be reduced by approximately $26 million, with cuts proposed by the previous Labor Government supported by the new Coalition Government.

Professor Harding said the historic reforms will have no impact on teaching programs or students, who just began the academic year.

“But in time, the restructure will give the university greater scope to consider new and exciting curriculum offerings linked to our future agenda and the needs of northern Queensland,” she said.

Best and brightest tropical researchers meet at JCU

Young, up-and-coming researchers met at The Cairns Institute at James Cook University recently to develop innovative solutions to the unique challenges associated with global tropical regions.

The tropics are home to half of the world’s population, and host around 80 per cent of global biodiversity.

In Australia, the tropics represent 40 per cent of the country’s landmass, making us the world’s largest high-income tropical country.

James Cook University

Science building at the JCU Townsville campus

Australia has the opportunity to become a world leader in addressing tropical issues, and the young researchers who attended the Tropical Research Network (TRN) conference in Cairns all brought a passion for research in this field.

Life in the tropics poses challenges that span social, political and natural issues.

Average income is less than $2 per day, and disease and poor health impair quality of life and limit life expectancy. In addition, rapid biodiversity loss in the past decade has reduced the availability of natural resources critical to everyday living.

The complexity of the tropics calls for expertise from a variety of fields and the TRN has taken on this challenge, bringing together a diverse group of young researchers from Australian universities.

Participants from the natural, social and health sciences are collaborating to take tropical research a big step forward.

“It’s incredibly inspiring to share ideas with people from such different backgrounds and perspectives, and to come up with exciting new approaches to solving real issues in the tropics,” TRN participant Katherine Cure from University of Western Australia said.

The implications of the TRN are global, according to Amazonian archaeologist and keynote speaker Professor Eduardo Neves, from the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil.

“I see this as a great opportunity to establish an international network of tropical research from a perspective connecting the Indo-Pacific and the Neotropical environments and peoples of Latin America,” Professor Neves said.

OzTREKK JCU Dental School orientation

Twelve brand new dentistry students recently enjoyed the OzTREKK JCU Dental School orientationat the JCU Cairns campus in Queensland this past Valentine’s Day.

OzTREKK JCU Dental School orientation—at the beach!

OzTREKK JCU Dental School orientation—at the beach!

Even though the weather threatened rain throughout the day, the sun still shone brightly most of the time. Amidst typical rainforest weather, the students were actually quite surprised at how humid Cairns was, while all the JCU staff thought the weather had not been overly hot lately—nice for them, but still too hot for freshly landed Canadians! With the temperature in the low thirties, the humidex hovered above the mid-thirties, giving the Canadian students a taste of tropical weather.

OzTREKK Director and Co-founder Beth McNally met the new dentistry students at 9 a.m. at the JCU Cairns main bus stop area on campus where everyone greeted each other and had a quick chat. Nishant Khan, a former OzTREKK student going into his second year of dentistry at the JCU Dental School, met with everyone as well, offering his support and experience to the new dentistry students. Everyone loaded into Beth’s van—A.K.A. the OzTREKK Shuttle—and in Nishant’s car, and headed for Trinity Beach, a quiet beach area with a small street with some local restaurants and a few shops, about a five-minute drive from JCU. What a beautiful part of the world, bordering the rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef!

Once arrived, all the new dentistry students enjoyed an outdoor OzTREKK Welcome Breakfast at the Trinity Beach Beachfront Bar and Grill. Coincidentally, their main server explained that he is a patient at the JCU Dental Clinic and has had his teeth fixed three times there, and loves the place! He proudly let the OzTREKK students about how well the JCU Dental Clinic is regarded by the community.

The most popular breakfast item by far was pancakes with fresh blueberries, sprinkled with icing sugar and smothered in maple syrup—and some of the OzTREKK students indulged in ice cream as a bonus topping!

After the OzTREKK Welcome Breakfast, everyone enjoyed the opportunity to relax at the beach for a while, while Beth drove a few people back to their residences and picked up another new dentistry student, who had just arrived from Canada the night before. This dentistry student was staying in a homestay arrangement, whereby she lives with an Australian family while attending the university. Homestay is a great way for some students—especially recent high school graduates—to adjust to their new lives in Australia. The comfort and ease of having an Australian family to live with and support you is reassuring for students as well as their parents.

Around noon, everyone met at the Dentistry building at the Cairns campus, “Building D” — How fitting! Beth had arranged a tour of the dentistry facilities and an opportunity to meet with the Head of Dentistry, Professor Andrew Sandham, a caring,  fascinating, and multilingual man who has practiced dentistry all over the world, including Denmark, Ireland, Scotland, and the Netherlands. Professor Sandham lead the tour, along with Dr Felicity Croker (Associate Dean, Teaching and Learning for the faculty, senior lecturer and academic advisor); and Dr Ernest Jennings (Ernie), first-year coordinator for the BDS program. The new JCU dentistry students seized the opportunity to review the homerooms, classrooms, anatomy lab, the 80-seat dental simulation laboratory, prosthodontics and science laboratories, and the JCU Dental Clinic, which is open to the public. Some of the chairs in the dental clinic look out onto the rainforest—talk about a relaxing view while you get your teeth cleaned! Students begin to work in the dental clinic during in their third year of the JCU dental program.

After our tour of the dentistry facilities, students then took advantage of the OzTREKK Shuttle. The group made their way to the Smithfield shopping centre to open bank accounts, purchase mobile phone plans, get groceries, buy printers and rice cookers, and everything else needed to set up their “home away from home.”

The OzTREKK JCU Dental School orientation was great success and gave everyone the chance to meet their fellow dentistry students. A big thank you goes out to Nishant for joining the new students for breakfast, helping out, and sharing his experience. It’s always wonderful to have a current JCU dentistry student on hand to show you the ropes!
