About

History

Since we started teaching over 40 years ago, we’ve been deeply connected to the Asian region, socially conscious and environmentally aware, an integral part of the community and heavily industry focused. We’ve also become a comprehensive, research-intensive university, ranking in the top 2% of universities worldwide.

Education

  • Our degrees provide students with the theoretical guidance and practical experience necessary to ensure their success as they transition into the next generation of health professionals.
  • Our students and researchers learn within world-class facilities, preparing to work in disciplines across the range of health professions. You'll learn in the classroom, in laboratories and get to apply it all through clinical training in placements at a multitude of locations and healthcare workplaces.

Research

From what could be the world’s first malaria vaccine—now at human trial stage—to the first photo of a single atom’s shadow, Griffith researchers are at the forefront of discovery. Working in our world-class research centres, institutes and schools, our researchers are driven to better understand our world and improve people’s lives. Our research strengths span a broad spectrum of areas, from chronic diseases to criminology and Asian politics to the arts.

Career

  • Griffith University graduates are more equipped for the new world of work. We include real-life industry experiences in your degree and have a range of employability initiatives designed to give your career a kickstart. 
  • At Griffith you will have access to unique internship opportunities and we’ll help you develop your ePortfolio. We also have the first Australian franchise of Unitemps, which can help you get a job while you study. Griffith’s ticks of employability are just the start of a great university experience.
