4 Achievements Rankings James Cook University (JCU) was ranked in the top 400 universities in the 2015 Academic Ranking of World Universities. JCU is the top institution in the world for citations in coral reef science according to ISI essential science indicators. In 2014 JCU ranked 2nd in Australia for Life Sciences in the citations based Leiden rankings. Other JCU awarded 5 stars for "graduates getting a full time job" (Source: The Good Universities Guide 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015) We acknowledge Australian Aboriginal People and Torres Strait Islander People as the first inhabitants of the nation and acknowledge Traditional Owners of the lands where our staff and students live, learn and work.

5 Teaching & Research James Cook University was established to conduct teaching and research on areas of importance to the tropics. Our focus is on producing graduates who have the expertise to make a difference in their profession and their communities. We are also committed to providing the professional workforce for under-served communities and providing access and opportunity to those people who may not have previously been able to access higher education. At James Cook University our high quality research informs our teaching. Staff and students benefit from our tropical location in being able to conduct nationally and internationally significant research in environmental science and management, marine science, ecology, biology and biochemistry, geosciences, tropical health and medicine, high speed wind engineering, Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge, linguistics, and tourism studies. Our extensive network of research stations and facilities includes sites on two UNESCO World Heritage areas the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet tropics rainforests of Northern Queensland.
