Griffith University

Griffith University believes in, celebrates and strives for the remarkable. It is a relatively young university, but in the four decades since it was established, Griffith has grown from one campus and 451 students to become a comprehensive, multi-campus institution, with 50,000 students and over 200,000 graduates. Griffith's growth and development is underpinned by its commitment to make material contributions to local, national and international communities.

Since the beginning, Griffith has been deeply connected to the Asian region, socially conscious and environmentally aware, open to the community and industry focused. Griffith offers degrees in: business and government; criminology and law; education; engineering and information technology; environment, planning and architecture; medicine; dentistry; paramedicine, nursing, midwifery and allied health; humanities and languages; music; science and aviation; and visual and creative arts. 

Griffith produces remarkable graduates, armed with the skills and confidence to make their mark on the world. Students benefit from the remarkable opportunities available through Griffith’s extensive network of high profile industry partners, including the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, of which Griffith is an official, top-tier partner.

Welcoming students and staff from over 130 countries, Griffith celebrates its diversity, and recognises the unique and enduring contributions of the First Peoples. Designed to be different, Griffith has never lost sight of its progressive beginnings, and remains committed to offering an accessible, outstanding student experience, a world-class education and to undertake research that addresses the key issues of the 21st century.

Ranked in the world’s top three per cent

With highly awarded teaching staff, expert researchers, a comprehensive suite of degrees spanning all disciplines, and outstanding campus facilities, Griffith ranks among the world’s best universities. In five of the largest and most credible world university rankings, Griffith is ranked in the top 400—placing us in the top three pre cent worldwide.

Australia’s top teachers

Griffith teachers have won more Australian Government awards, citations, fellowships and grants than any other university. Since 2007, Griffith University teachers have been awarded: 

  • three Australian University Teacher of the Year awards
  • nine awards for Teaching Excellence
  • four awards for Programs that Enhance Learning
  • 42 Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning

Flexible study options

Griffith teaches across three 12-week trimesters, rather than two semesters, each year. This model offers students flexibility, industry engagement opportunities and, for some degrees, the opportunity to accelerate their study and graduate sooner. Students can also spread their study load across three trimesters in order to maintain a balance between their studies and work commitments. 

Practical experience 

Students have the opportunity to gain practical experience working on projects for real clients. Through Griffith’s work-integrated learning programs, students are able to build a portfolio, make critical contacts and key industry links. Examples of practical learning programs include: 

  • Liveworm — visual communication design studio
  • LiveSpace — a new studio for socially and environmentally responsible design, focusing on interior environments and product development
  • LiveImage — professional photography services
  • LiveLab — film, animation and games projects
  • The App Factory — smartphone app development by IT and multimedia students
  • Griffith Health Clinics — dentistry, physiotherapy, dietetics, speech pathology and psychology clinics at the Gold Coast where, under supervision, students saw over 50,000 patients last year
  • Financial trading rooms — offering accounting, finance and economics students real-time access to global financial markets.
