Griffith University (Australia)
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. Our degrees are developed in consultation with industry, based on cutting-edge research, and taught by Australia’s most awarded teachers.
Griffith hosts 50,000 students across five campuses in South East Queensland, spanning three major cities in Queensland (Gold Coast, Logan and Brisbane). Students choose Queensland not only for the quality education but for its superb subtropical climate, welcoming environment and mixture of natural wonders and vibrant city life.
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.
