Griffith University was created to be a different kind of university—challenging conventions, responding to trends, and pioneering solutions through innovative teaching and research. Our 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.
Ranking in the top 2% of universities worldwide, Griffith hosts 50,000 students across six campuses in South East Queensland, spanning three major cities (Gold Coast, Logan, and Brisbane). Students choose Griffith University not only for the quality education but for its superb subtropical climate, welcoming environment, and mixture of natural wonders and vibrant city life.
Griffith students gain the academic knowledge of a world-class university as well as the skills and confidence employers want. 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.
Employers like to see experience from the real world on your résumé. You can gain practical experience while you study, build your portfolio, and develop networks through internships and industry placements. Many work-integrated learning opportunities will allow you to earn credit towards your degree while gaining job experience.
Griffith’s range of mentoring programs will connect you locally and globally, allowing you to engage with students, alumni, and industry professionals. Through our Industry Mentoring Program, we will find you a suitable mentor to support and guide your career development.
Through this course, you will be able to make a difference in a local community organisation while developing a range of professional and personal skills. You will spend a minimum of 50 hours in a volunteer placement and combine this with academic learning. With hundreds of internship opportunities, we can tailor an internship to match your study area or interests.
Join one of our leadership programs, including the Griffith Business School Student Leadership Program, Griffith Honours College, or Griffith Mates program. You will receive formal recognition for participating in these programs and gain a range of experiences and skills sought after by future employers.
