What students think about Griffith University

    I chose Griffith for its state-of-the-art facilities

    I was accepted into five different dental schools in Australia, and I chose Griffith for its state-of-the-art facilities and because it was the only school that offered credit for prior learning.

    Griffith has some amazing facilities that really help to solidify my knowledge, which will eventually help me to be the best clinician I can be.

    I also thought the Gold Coast was going to be the best fit for me in terms of lifestyle.

    Everything from the beaches, to the community, to the vibe of the city is exactly what I hoped it would be.

    I love the wide variety of cultures, languages and ethnic backgrounds present across the campus.

    As an international student, I love the wide variety of cultures, languages and ethnic backgrounds present across the campus. The university supports international students through dedicated advisors, events and activities.

    I love studying at Griffith and aspire to be a medical scientist. At Griffith I can access great medical science and medical laboratory facilities.

    My program involves more than 400 hours in university laboratories and 400 hours in real laboratory experience. Hence, graduates have almost 100% employment rate as medical scientists.

    University life here is great and there’s a perfect balance between work and fun.

    Griffith has supported me through my student journey in numerous ways. The International Student Advisors really helped me figure out my study load, they would call and check on me and helped me with finding a house. I’m forever grateful for their support.

    I chose Griffith because of its reputation as the top hospitality school in Australia and because it gave me the option to do a double degree. I also love living in the land Down Under! The people are so friendly and warm, always ready to help or have a chat.
