Griffith University was created to be a different kind of university—challenging conventions, responding to trends and pioneering solutions through innovative teaching and research. Its high quality degrees are specifically designed to prepare students for the future, and are developed in consultation with industry, based on cutting-edge research, and taught by Australia’s most awarded teachers.
Since its beginning, Griffith has been deeply connected to the Asian region, environmentally aware, open to the community and industry focused. Always ahead of its time, Griffith introduced Australia’s first degrees in a range of important areas, including modern Asian studies and environmental science. It is a recognised leader in online education, and has offered award-winning online programs for nearly 20 years.
Ranking in the top three per cent of universities worldwide, 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 students gain the academic knowledge of a world-class university, as well as the skills and confidence that employers desire. Through industry placements and projects for real clients, students put what they learn in the classroom into practice and gain valuable contacts before they graduate.
Griffith is the Official University Partner of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. Through this partnership, students have access to over 250 internships, offering them the opportunity to be closely involved in the build up to and delivery of the biggest event in Australia this decade.
