Cairns Universities & Tertiary Education

Cairns Universities & Tertiary Education Colleges

University and Tertiary Education is open to both school leavers and mature aged students. Cairns is a great place to go away and study with smaller campuses, relaxed vibe and some great rainforest and ocean when it's time to leave the books.

Many of the usual courses are offered at Cairns' university and tertiary education facilities but there are also courses and degrees that are in tune to the natural environment or career opportunities in the area. James Cook University Cairns has one of the most well regarded research and education facilities looking into study on the tropics and Far North Queensland TAFE has the Maritime Academy which offers training courses covering all of the marine industry.

Take a look at the University and Tertiary Education facilities below and see why people choose to pack up and head north to gain higher education.
