As your son or daughter gets ready to move onto the next phase of their life, they will soon have to make a decision on which path to take on their education journey. As a parent myself, I know that this is a major decision and recognise that the guidance and support you as a parent can provide is important in helping your son or daughter make the right choice.
In this JCU Parents’ Guide, my team has compiled key information which you may require to make the right choice together with your son or daughter.
You will find out about the work-integrated learning approach we have to our teaching and learning pedagogy in the university, be able to read feedback of fellow parents and hear from some of our alumni who will share their experience at the university.
As a university, we are committed to nurturing all students into professionals that can contribute to not just the economy, but society at large by providing a holistic education.
I hope this guide serves as a useful source of information to help you make the best choice that fits the interests and goals of your son or daughter.
