    I got to know about JCU through a lot of research and word of mouth. Graduating from school was stressful enough and I needed to make sure I knew what options were available for me. After asking around, I got to know about the admission process through a friend of a friend. I asked absolutely everything I could think of about the university and the course, as she was currently studying there and was my best reference. The admission process included an application that asked all the questions expected when entering a medical degree. The admission process also included an interview as well as consideration of our final OP (or ATAR if outside QLD) grade. There were no application fees, except that of the QTAC website. I applied for several colleges before graduating but chose JCU after some deliberation. I believed it was the best university for the type of medical degree I wished to acquire. I opted for this program because it has a great focus on rural health and medicine. In the long term, I wish to study overseas in developing countries, so I decided to go to JCU to get a head start and learn particularly about rural and tropical medicine to help me in the future. When applying for JCU, they do not consider the UMAT score, all you need to apply is a good final grade twelve grade, complete an application and be available for an interview. Regarding batch sizes when applying, they take around 10,000 applications last I heard, and interview around 2000 people. The grade size of my year began with around 250 people. Now, I am in the second year and we have a size of around 200 students studying in my year.

    Course structure & it's situated in a regional area so it is an easy life & I can interact with more people and make connections easily with native people! I also need international exposure! I live in Cairns.

    The Australian experience and ranking. An Australian experience would count for a lot back in my home country of India. The university I chose is also a very reputed one and a very established one. Also, I get two years of temporary residency which will give me a chance to put my theoretical knowledge into practical skills.

    This college was the closest to my rural residence and most advertised to schools in my area. It also offers great health facilities and the option for extra study after completing my degree. There are plenty of work opportunities as it is connected to the local hospitals.

    Diversity bin campuses, they have campuses in multiple locations and allowed us to transfer between them which let us experience everything in all possible ways. And the diversity in teaching staff helped us to explore more.
