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.
