James Cook University Singapore Review

Overall review of James Cook University Singapore

“If I were to give a summary about my life in JCU, it’s overall a pleasant one. If you ask me about it, the bad and the ugly it’s something more practical, the money lor.”

I had a video call with James Cook University Singapore alumni, Xiang Tian who enrolled into James Cook University Singapore’s Pre-university Foundation Program, went on to the Bachelor of Psychological Science and then the Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours).

Having spent so many years in JCU Singapore, I wanted him to provide an honest review about his experience in James Cook University Singapore.

In this video, we discuss his experience with studying in the different programmes in JCU Singapore, social life and campus activities and he gives his overall opinion about the university.

He doesn’t hold back his punches in the overall opinion asking the question that’s on everyone’s mind: “Why are tuition fees at JCU Singapore so expensive?”
