    ehhh....
    to be honest, i don't think v much of JCU.
    it's located in far up Queensland and isn't all that highly thought of by the locals afaik.
    it's good for marine related courses, but psych?......i'm iffy......

      i'm doing psychology as a shared major in NUS now... i feel tt if u want to do psy, it's better that u go overseas.. the degrees from singapore are not recognized so u can't practice anyway, so only can learn for interest... unless u plan to get a BA here then go overseas or something like that...

          i guess i'm taking up psy cos nothing else really interests me.

          and perhaps from there, i might just go into human resource management? as the Lord leads...

          or i might just go back to full time tuition

              My sis in law did her psychology course in Uni of Melbourne and then her final semester, she did an exchange prog with Penn State Uni in States. She wanted UCLA etc (they have an impressive list of States unis for exchange programme) but her application submitted too late coz it was a last min decision by her after much encouragement from me

              Now, she's in Nottingham Uni, England doing her bridging course = hons (i think) before she could take up Masters in dunno which uni in England.

              Fees wise, shoot me. I have no idea but i know she spent really a lot on accomodation, food and holidays!

              Hths!

                        Air, if you are interested in Human Resource Management, try finding out if there are any dip or degree thats more related to that. I have a degree in Psychology from NUS, and its no relevance to HRM at all.

                            I think overseas degree for psych has the same recognition as a Singapore degree. To be a practising psychologist, you need more than just a BA. That's what my friends who took that told me.

                              don't think that it's complusory to have good english, but it really really helps if you do, as there'll be "chim" words and new terms, and if you don't have a certain standard of english, it'll be hard to catch up on readings and understanding them...
