Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am yet to start my studies at Griffith, which I hope I will get to do. It is not certain, as I cannot afford to pay for the tuition fee. However so far my experience with the University is great - I never have any problems communicating with school and they patiently answer all of my questions.
