JAMES COOK UNIVERSITY - Seven peaks education


A. Overview

The Singapore campus of James Cook University is fully owned by James Cook University Australia, which is ranked in the top 2%* of universities in the
world. James Cook University Australia established its Singapore campus in 2003 as part of its expressed intent of internationalising its activities and offers a suite of university level programs at the Singapore campus covering the areas of Business, Information Technology, Psychology and Education.

Additionally, the campus offers courses at the pre-university level, specifically designed to provide pathways for students who are unable to immediately meet university entrance standards.

EduTrust Star

James Cook University has the highest level of accreditation in Singapore for private education providers. This is known as EduTrust Star and is only awarded to those institutions which can display the highest possible standard in their academic programs, student experience and in the manner in which they operate. James Cook University is the first organisation with this accreditation.


James Cook University has also been awarded the Singapore Quality Class STAR (SQC STAR). The SQC STAR recognises SQC organisations that have made further improvement in their business excellence journey.
