10 Jehan Katrak Bachelor of Psychology Studying at JCU has shown me not only the advantage of quality international education, but has fostered in me a sense of respect and an understanding of cultural diversity. Against a backdrop of edifying differences, students find similarity in their passion for learning and research, which JCU nurtures. 10 My time here allowed me to grow as both a learner through my degree, and as an individual through the rich palette of people that I met.
